There has been a change of plans for me regarding Global Read Aloud since I'm changing work places and moving on up from junior high school to high school. This means that "Orbiting Jupiter" will have to wait and instead I'm focusing on "All American Boys" to see if that is something that I can work with with my new students this fall. So far, after 100 pages of reading, it's promising and I'm slowly getting caught in the characters' dilemmas... I think this will be a great book to discuss and from it bridge into the US elections in November.

Summer = reading. Here's a wonderful - and terrifying - short story by Ray Bradbury. A classic that needs to be read - that yearns to be read - and one that will stay with you for quite some time.

Keep your English alive and kicking by reading a little this summer - here's a digital version with short stories, novellas and audiobooks at various levels. Maybe something for a rainy day?? :)
