Literacy Live 2016

         

 

Oak Hill Academy hosted our 7th Annual Literacy Live Event in honor of National Learning Disabilities Month on October 12th.  Our guest author this year was Michael Anthony Steele. Mr. Steele shared his journey to becoming an author and screenwriter, including his work as a photographer, producing special effects for movies and videos, and creating props for the children's favorite show, Wishbone.  Middle School students were thrilled to share their own books that they created in their Literature/Language  Arts class.  Thank you Mr. Steele, for a wildly entertaining show, and a peek into the many aspects of writing that we were not as familiar with - screenwriting for tv, movies, videos and even video games!
