  4. Make videos of students reading their essays to use on the school’s social media.

  6. Establish a panel of judges at your school for evaluating the student articles, and award prizes for their creativity.
  7. Reach out to a local manufacturing company to schedule a Zoom Video Session for your class to interview them or get a virtual tour.
