A Place to Be Quiet by Donalyn Miller

A Place to Be Quiet by Donalyn Miller | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
I’ve traveled continuously this summer—going from one literacy conference to the next. I’ve met thousands of teachers, librarians, and administrators gathered in auditoriums and classrooms to learn more about engaging children with reading. It’s been an inspiring summer spent talking with passionate folks about literacy. I have learned a lot and hopefully shared some ideas…

Middle Grade Books Serve As Windows and Mirrors by Shannon Hitchcock

Middle Grade Books Serve As Windows and Mirrors by Shannon Hitchcock | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
I first thought about Middle Grade books as windows and mirrors when listening to Grace Lin’s TED Talk, “The Windows and Mirrors of Your Child’s Bookshelf.” Grace says kids need to see themselves in books, like looking in a mirror. On the flip side, kids need to read about children whose lives don’t resemble theirs,…

This Savage Song | Teenreads | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city --- a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent --- but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it.

A Classroom Culture’s Impact on Students’ Reading Success by Emily Visness

A Classroom Culture’s Impact on Students’ Reading Success by Emily Visness | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
​Inspiring students to read can be challenging. Yes, I realize that is a gross understatement. Middle school students have a reputation for not wanting to do much of anything except socialize with each other and exhibit Great Disdain for adult humans.  However, middle school students are not always disaffected, malcontent, and divisive. At least, not…

He captures the voice of a disenchanted teen so well that readers of all backgrounds will find familiarity in Henry Denton, the novel’s main character.  For many years, Henry has been the victim of…
