Taking Middle School Reading Out of the Box!
Take this idea and run with it!
Vermont Public Library Foundation Grants
- Collaboration between a public library and a school is strongly encouraged.
- A program for middle schoolers focused on one of the Classical Connections literature pairings:
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan and Greek Mythology
The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt and Shakespeare
Jip by Katherine Paterson and Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld and The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
Libraries may use the materials that Charlotte has already prepared, or they may create their own. Multiple copies of titles are available for loan through the Vermont Department of Libraries. Visit the link below to locate the grant application and accompanying resources for each classic pairing.
