Everyone should have a classroom library, whether you teach English or another content area. Classroom libraries offer all kinds of benefits: increased student reading achievement, greater access to print material, greater levels of volume of student reading, and more. But starting a classroom library is a daunting task. How do you afford it? Organize it? Maintain it?
Are you looking for a sharp, witty read for your high school classroom library? Carry On by Rainbow Rowell is a hilarious romp that is equal parts romance, adventure, and mystery.
This is great for your real readers–the ones who love big books, love series, and like to “live” in the worlds that they read about. Anyone who is a fan of Harry Potter or Tolkien will love this book!
We get so caught up in a curriculum, paperwork, standards, and observations that we often lose the magic of literature; The Hate U Give brought it back to my class.
