This podcast is all about teachers who read: Katherine Sokolowski and Gretchen Taylor talk to us about their reading habits and books that have had an important impact on them as teachers and readers. Later, Voices from the Middle coeditor Dr. Sara Kajder facilitates a discussion with Katherine and Gretchen about what it means to be a teacher who reads and how educators can develop reading practices at home that fulfill them on both a personal and professional level. In addition, Beth Shaum’s eighth graders at St. Francis Cabrini Middle School in Allen Park, MI, are taking over this week's segment of Voices from the Bookshelf. Alana booktalks Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon, Anna discusses Jumped In by Patrick Flores-Scott, Aston talks about Saint Death by Marcus Sedgwick, Carson gives an overview of Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, Madeline discusses The Diamond of Drury Lane by Julia Golding, Rachel gives an overview of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, Thomas introduces us to Black River Falls by Jeff Hirsch, Tony booktalks The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan, and Tori discusses Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin.
