Incorporating Time to Read in Your Class
"It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations—something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own." —Katherine Patterson
We'd love to help you incorporate reading!
The Hate U Give
Have you read it yet? We just received more copies of the book, so if you or your students would like to borrow a copy, let us know! It's a great idea for literature circles or small group reads :)
The Hate U Give Movie
There's a movie! It comes out tomorrow, October 19th!
The Next Big Read
If you or your students enjoyed the book, we have many more high-interest novels that contain the same themes. Check out our display in front of the teacher workroom!
The Hate U Give
"Teen Read Week™ is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association and is held annually in October. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users."
