It’s October, so time to switch up the stories in our Call Me Ishmael payphone! This month, we again featured stories shared by students in Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School as well as an administrator, a teacher, and a staff member. To add something fun to the mix, we tapped into a project that our public speaking class was doing (this class is offered to Upper School students as an elective). Since they were doing a unit on reading children’s stories, we asked students to submit a recording of a personal story related to the children’s book they had selected for class. So, two of the featured stories this month recorded by Upper School students will appeal to our Lower School students! We will probably continue to do this to some extent in the future.
We are also archiving all of these recordings in Flipgrid so that as we swap out recordings each month, we can still reference past stories: https://flipgrid.com/50ec31. And so that we can share with the larger community!
Our archive of Flipgrid’s can be found here: Bullis School – Sharing Books We Love
