I love reading books aimed toward adolescents (except Twilight). I look forward to learning about the many adolescent books and maybe some tips on how to go about teaching some of the books to a class of middle school students.

Probably everyone has already ready Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games and Catching Fire - they are incredible! Also The Knife of Never Letting Go and The Ask and the Answer (book 1 and 2 in the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness) are so exciting and so beautifully written!!

I am starting a new novel unit with my 7th Graders in a few weeks. I was wondering if anyone had resources for the novel _Oddballs_ by William Sleator.

Lit folks might enjoy these two posts about the poet, multimedia artist and “observationalist” Rives.

VIDEO: Poet Rives - A Story of Mixed Emoticons


They are both in the Poets & Writers Group - check it out or join the group if you teach poetry or writing!!!

Hope you're ready for a mellow thanksgiving!

Thomas - maybe place that question up in the discussion forum - it is easier for folks to respond there! Sorry I just caught this. Ryan

Great article on non-fiction graphic novels including one about Katrina titled, "Journalists, Artists Tell Stories with Nonfiction Graphic Novels" can be found in the Graphic Novels group here.

I don't know if y'all are the the Making Shakespeare Pop group but you might want to check out the Wordle Allison Branch created for Julius Caesar (at the bottom of the discussion)! The strategy is certainly something you could crib for the characters in the novels/stories you are teaching.

Hey Ad Lit folks, if you're not in the American Lit group you might consider joining as there was a point- counterpoint post today on Catcher In the Rye you might find enjoyable!
