Kristina McMorris, a New York Times best selling author, visited Spartanburg High School as part of the 7Reads Program. She shared with students how she became an author. We really appreciate the information she shared about the importance of reading and her research methodology. Her historical fiction books include information about World War II, the Great Depression, and Alcatraz. Thank you Kristina for visiting our school!
Author Lance Rubin came on September 26th and talked to classes. Students had the opportunity to try improv and then later writing a very short story. Lance Rubin gave them the first sentence to write and then students wrote the rest of the story on their own. Lance was a dynamic speaker, and the students thoroughly enjoyed his presentation.
Students choose 7Reads books from September 13th – 27th. They really enjoyed taking a look through the titles and picking their one title.
