Points of View Reference Center
One that stood out to me as it helped so many content areas meet a standard (or more) was Points of View Reference Center. It provides access to valid articles that share four main essays on the "topic" researched:
- an overview of the topic
- point (arguments that support the topic)
- counterpoint (arguments that support the opposing side)
- guide to critical analysis (questions & tips on how to dig deeper)
Take a couple of minutes and explore! Or contact me so we can explore together!

Sunny Side Up by Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm
Following Mr. Shu on Twitter he shared that a podcast was forthcoming about this book, sharing the entire story of production -- from author to editor to colorist and more! This concept fascinated me so I listened and learned that Sunny Side Up was not only a must read, but a must have in the MS libraries.
Sunny Side Up, a graphic novel by the sister & brother team who write Babymouse, is a modified autobiographical story. It discusses what happened to Jennifer when her family tried to cover a family secret. The implications of how it impacted everyone -- most definitely Jennifer -- were detailed, both visually and written. This is a story that so many teens will gravitate towards as it is realistic, warm and a tad bit humorous.
