A first kiss. The first day in a new school. The first loss of a loved one. These are some of the stories told in Moments, a collection of narratives written by students from the High School of Construction Trades, Engineering, and Architecture, located in Queens, NY.
Comprised of four sections ― adventure, love, loss, and home ― Moments captures the sorrow and spontaneity of growing up. Pick up this book, immerse yourself in these stories, and bring back the nostalgia of days past.
USING THIS PUBLICATION IN THE CLASSROOM
Writing can be therapeutic ― it can initiate a journey of reflection that can help us redefine our world. By transforming feelings into words, the young authors of Moments gained a better understanding of how they’ve been shaped by their personal experiences.
We invite you to use this text as an opportunity to inspire students to express themselves through writing. Use it to inspire prompts, stimulate discussions, and render reflection.
Each of Moments’ themes can help you engage with your students in multiple ways, and the theme of love is particularly fitting for the month of February. As you immersive yourself in these candid and heartfelt accounts, you may even be reminded of your own high school sweetheart!
