This week’s episode is devoted completely to young adult literacy, as our teacher correspondents ask students about their reading lives. First, Beth Shaum asks her 6th- and 7th-grade students at St. Francis Cabrini Catholic School in Allen Park, MI, to create Twitter book talks about novels that they enjoy. Next, Amy Fleming engages her students from Elizabethtown Area Middle School in Lancaster, PA, in a roundtable discussion about their favorite books and why they love to read. In our final segment, Katherine Sokolowski’s 7th graders at Monticello Middle School in Monticello, IL, deliver some book talks about novels that they have read and think other young adults will like as well. (20:42)
