After watching clips from the movie “Rudy,” Ms. Christi Akers’ students at  SMS wrote essays about their dreams.  Students used their new Chromebooks to write the essay in Google Docs.  The students were able to share the document with Ms. Akers and she could make comments on the students’ essays while they were working at their desk.  Students discussed how Rudy overcame obstacles to achieve his dream and then made connections to their own lives and the obstacles they would need to overcome to achieve their dreams.
