Mr. Astor's class and my class worked together on Totem Poles. We read stories about totems, and we discussed symbolism. It was interesting that our students connected the idea of symbols used in totems to the symbols (letters) in our alphabet symbolizing spoken sounds. The greatest accomplishment was that both classes worked together: cooperating, conversing, and behaving in truly functional and productive ways. Robin Buchman
