Students enrolled in Jane Murphy’s first-grade class at Slocum Elementary School recently stepped into the role of a teacher as they wove together nonfiction stories to teach their classmates about new subjects.

The young students chose to write about subjects such as how to play basketball and the differences between various species of sharks. They supplemented their stories with detailed illustrations along the way. Within their image panels, the students used visual enhancements such as labeling and zooming in to assist their fellow authors in further understanding the message being conveyed.
