The Art of Storytelling

Dr. Jayetta Slawson, a professor at Southeastern Louisiana University, recently visited Slidell Junior High to work with some 8th grade Reading students. Dr. Slawson performed a story that she had written. The students were then guided through a writing exercise in which they created a short tale based on a famous literary character.

Photosynthesis Live

Recently at Slidell Junior High, Mrs. Triola's students were each given the role of a carbon, hydrogen or oxygen atom.  They positioned themselves to form the reactants of the photosynthesis equation and then the by products of the photosynthesis equation.  The students did the same for respiration.  The idea is for the students to recognize that the photosynthesis equation is basically the respiration equation backwards.

Devin Pearson and Andrew Coludrovich are both oxygen atoms while Lawrence Simmons is the hydrogen atom.

Paige Schenck and Jozelyn Barnes represent the compounds.

Keyan Hughes, Krysta Bertaut, Shanna Sharpe, McKenzie Davis, and Grayson Cureau take on the role of oxygen atoms.
