Inspired by the work of Significant Objects … and how they got that way, Grade 11 students (ELA 20-1) from Wm. E. Hay High School are embarking upon a journey of their own to see where it will lead them.
In September they chose their “insignificant” objects and began writing stories about them to create their significance. On Friday (Dec. 9) we began publishing the stories along with the items on eBay to see if people will buy them because of their newly created significance.
Pretty cool, eh? Needless to say, we’re flattered and excited by this undertaking. Check out the students’ objects & stories at http://stettlerssignificantobjects.blogspot.com/, consider making some bids via their eBay store — and help ’em spread the word.
