Ms. Yeo's English 9 class at Seycove Secondary recently wrote a book of short stories titled "Seycove's Thunder." The preface to the book explains the project:
Our class of grade nines went to Tsleil-Waututh First Nation's community to listen to an indigenous writer, Wab Kinew, read his new book, "Go Show the World." This book was about indigenous heroes, and it inspired us to write our own book. The class based our book on the way his book was written, with small poems on each page, a tagline that continued throughout the book and the pictures behind them. The class decided to write our book about mental health and being in grade 9. The plan was for the whole class to write one book. We made the book by having small groups of students write different pages, and each page was about a different mental health topic. One of the biggest challenges in writing the book was trying to work collaboratively with everyone to make one end product that we all felt proud of.
