    Day 4 - The Transcription Project

    Today was our last full day on the project. When I walked into the computer lab, three girls came to me talking all at once about their letters and how much they enjoyed the project. Some wanted to keep transcribing and asked if they could work on it over the summer! It is exciting to see their enthusiasm.

    By the end of the class period each student had completed at least two letters -- transcribed, proofread with a partner, corrections made, and data entry sheet completed. Some girls had finished three or even four letters.

    Our final day of the unit will be to discuss what we learned. I find that they are anxious to share the letters they transcribed and want to hear the stories from other letters in an effort to put together the bigger picture. We will save that for Tuesday!
