The month is winding down and I still have so many thankful posts that could be written – that is a reason to be thankful right there!
A few weeks ago, I was asked to consider serving on the literature review committee at my old school**. They were looking for people to read and review books that teachers want to add to the reading lists. I am familiar with the process and with the school’s educational philosophy. I also do love to read. It seemed like a good fit so I said yes. The first book I was asked to read is Nickel Boys. I actually read this book when it first came out so it is a re-read for me. It is so interesting to read this book with a different lens. I liked this book (it is a hard subject but well written) but now I get to consider it using the teacher’s curriculum goals and standards. I am grateful to have a chance to practice reading better!
**Note: I was the administrator for the early education program but this is a PreK – grade 12 school. Most of the books I will be asked to read will be for grades 7-12 – just in case you were wondering.
