aka YA Literature

Where is everybody?

Things have been pretty quiet here at ATR lately. That is because two of us are in the process of changing jobs (and one of us has no excuse whatsoever). Starting Monday morning, I will be teaching Reading to high school students who are reading far below their grade level. I am teaching two different Reading classes. One class uses the Read 180 program by Scholastic and the other is using the school's loosely defined curriculum. It will be interesting to see the difference between the two classes and which students benefit more. My bets are on the Read 180 students as they have blocked shedules and therefore have 90 minutes of Reading per day. Scholastic provides all the materials including the books and audiobooks. Many of the books are ones I had in my YA collection at the library and have read and enjoyed myself.
There you have it...my great excuse for being a very poor blogger.

I'm glad you posted. I've been feeling guilty. I haven't even finished Eclipse!

What can you say, I'm still recovering from a long summer that's left me bitter and jaded towards all teens and YA lit! LOL You're both escaping...I'm stuck here still.

And my library still hasn't gotten most of our copies of Eclipse on the shelf...how sad is that.
