Seventh grade teacher Mr. Green and middle school assistant director  Ms. Chall took eighth graders to see the movie The Hate U Give Thursday at the theatre in Silver Spring. The students had participated in Mr. Green’s Book Club from previous year that focused on the book by Angie Thomas. The group then had a book/movie discussion over dinner. In English classes teachers use book groups to discuss high-interest texts and promote small group discussion and critical thinkings.
