Washingtonville HS Students Hone Their Publishing and Animating Skills

In a few short weeks Washingtonville High School will have a published student on our hands. Students in Mr. Calderin’s classes, as well as other writers around the school, recently wrote short stories. Currently, Mr. Calderin’s classes are evaluating the pieces in groups, zoning in on what makes a compelling story such as descriptive detail, developed characters, dialogue, conflict, and voice and style. The students were tasked with reading, analyzing, and scoring their classmates’ stories, which were anonymously labeled. The top stories from each group will enter the second round of evaluation, where the class as a whole will choose their favorite to be published!

Washingtonville High School’s Computer Illustration and Animation class is also getting creative with writing and design! They are crafting their own renditions of their favorite children’s books digitally. This is one of the many lessons that have taught the students a real-life application of graphic design work. Students looked to authors such as Eric Carle, Dr. Seuss, and Dav Pilkey for inspiration.
