Project by Luke Patterson.

In Mrs. Fenstermaker’s 10th grade English classes, the students complete an independent reading project each quarter. Each quarter, the students choose a book based on their own interests and then complete a different project. The second quarter reading projects are the most eye-catching as they hang from the ceiling in her classroom.
