Student Work magazine
We value the work students produce in English classes. We invite you to explore the fabulous things our students have created the past academic year, including 2011, 2012, and 2013 Virginia Burke Writing Contest award-winning essays.
We're extremely proud of the variety of work, both in traditional and multimedia formats, being produced in our English classes. This issue's offerings include collaborative projects, approproprations of pop culture slogans, and original digital artwork. We would like to thank our instructors for offering opportunites for students to express themselves in a variety of media, and we commend the students for taking risks with their experimental work.
