Fruit Bowl Project
Audience: 7th Grade - 8th Grade
The kids in the eighth grade writers' workshop are in for a surprise: their teacher knows rock legend Nick Thompson, and he'll be dropping by to visit. As Nick Thompson sees it, 'A song's just a bowl of fruit, and I've just gotta figure out how to paint it.' He challenges them to take an ordinary event and to write about it in ways that are uniquely their own. What they create is a mixture of genres, forms, and perspectives that transforms something seemingly mundane into a work of art. This collection could inspire any writer looking for a new take on his or her subject.
