New Tech students’ Dust Bowl stories on display at library
Juniors from Sacramento New Technology High School wrote historical fiction stories set during the time of the Great Depression and Dust Bowl. The stories were an assignment for American History/English 11.
The stories were written in groups and a few of the teams illustrated their text. The stories highlighted trials and tribulations of their fictional characters as a way to learn about the time period.
The unit culminated with a reception at the Robbie Waters Pocket-Greenhaven Library where the top six stories will be on display for the next month.
