Join the Choice Literacy Book Club! Dana Murphy selected the May pick. It is My Hero Academia Volume 1 by Kohei Horikoshi. This new manga book is popular in classrooms and a new reading experience for our book club. Grab a copy, and join the conversation using the hashtag #ChoiceLiteracyBookClub. 

On The Black Creators Series, Sonja Cherry-Paul and Sophia Thakur discuss poetry and Somebody Give This Heart a Pen.

Poetry writing always has the potential to spark some magic in students. Christy Rush-Levine finds that this magic requires a few connections to be in place first in her middle school classroom. (This article was first published in 2018.)

Heather Rader makes connections between being a reader and a scientist. (This article was first published in 2012.)
