Thursday morning the students of Mrs. Workman's eighth-grade class at Lincoln Junior High School paid a visit to Central School. The purpose of the trip was to share with third-grade students stories from a book they had written in honor of Black History Month.

The eighth-graders were paired up with their younger counterparts and took positions around the school cafeteria. There they worked in a variety of ways to share their book. In some of the groups, the younger students read the stories aloud; in other groups it was the older student who did the reading.

Before they began, Mrs. Workman asked for a show of hands from her students as to how many had attended Central School.  When hands came up, she told the younger students that this showed that one day they could be the ones writing the book and reading it to others.

She also said her class was very excited about sharing the book. The research they had done was geared to the third-grade level, and they had been careful to write their stories so that the younger ones could understand it.
