Great Books for Resistant Readers in Middle School and High School | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

I have been on the hunt as of late for books that I can hand to one of my hardest student groups; my resistant readers.  Not just reluctant readers, not just readers that may have forgotten how much they like reading, no, the students that really do not want to read and would rather fake…

Parents need to expect that our kids will see news they weren't prepared to see. So we need to know how to react when the time comes.

One Judge’s Order For Hate Crime Committers: Read More Books

And not just these books. From the article...

They will also have to do a research paper on swastikas and attend a Holocaust Museum with their parents. 

The assigned films include “Twelve Years a Slave” and “Lincoln”; the books include The Handmaid’s Tale, The Bluest Eye, To Kill a Mockingbird and Native Son. 

Newer classics including Adam Johnson’s The Orphan Master’s Son and Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad, the latter of which won last year’s National Book Award, were featured on the list, too."

We all hope that that classics reach them. But, I'm happy to hear that visiting a Holocaust museum, watching relatively contemporary films and modern novels were included.

We must make every effort to battle the virus of "alternative fact."

Ironically FICTION may be a weapon in that battle.

What's the difference?
Alternative facts aren't facts
Fiction amplifies truth.

We can all agree it’s been a rough season for the news media. Hostile political crowds, accusations of slander, and struggles with what Guardian editor Katharine Viner has called the “waning power of evidence” and “diminishing status of truth.” Today more than ever, the news media’s role as a mediator and gatekeeper of civic discourse […]

The rich digital and hands-on resources libraries offer, especially when guided by librarians, can help families steer, guide, and support learning. The report highlights five actions that libraries are taking to engage all families in children’s learning from early childhood and throughout the school years.
