Happy Friday everyone! Ginger's question is a good one for me, since I'm a high school librarian. I think about this quite often.
Back to School Reading: Which books would you like to see in today's high school Literature classrooms?
The first one that comes to mind is: Wonder, by R. J. Palacio. Actually, this should really be read in middle school, but I couldn't not mention it.
I think Want to Go Private? is a great book for lots of discussion too.
There are so many great, recently published book for teens. Sometimes I think English teachers only consider classics, and while that's OK, I wish they were more willing to explore some more recent books.
Great question. Thanks, Ginger. I know you are "taking a break" from this meme, but I hope to see it back soon! Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
