Using Anthologies in the Classroom
Perfect to supplement a unit while offering choice to your students!
"Because of their inclusive nature, as well as the length of entries within a collection, anthologies offer opportunities to expose teen readers to a wide variety of styles and voices in a single book. Likewise, many anthologies discuss bigger social issues, reframe classics used in the classroom, and tie into popular reading among teens" (SLJ, 2019)
