5 Things to Add to Your Winter Reading List 

November 29, 2016


In the final weeks of November 2016, many great texts came out of or were highlighted by the NCTE community. Here are a few suggestions for your winter-break TBR pile! 

  1. The November issue of the Council Chronicle includes a feature on the African American Read-In. (Now is a good time to start planning for February!) Also look for a feature on NCTE’s new brand identity.
  2. If you’re looking for books with the power to transform children’s lives by inviting compassion, imagination, and wonder, check out the 2017 picks for the Charlotte Huck Award. Congratulations to Jayson Reynolds for his winning book, Ghost.
  3. If you’re looking for the best in children’s nonfiction, check out the 2017 picks for the Orbis Pictus Award. Congratulations to Melissa Sweet for her winning book Some Writer!: The Story of E.B. White.
  4. Many people have written blog posts, produced podcasts, and tweeted reflections on #NCTE16. You can browse a growing collection of these pieces here. And there’s a treasure trove of resources to be found in the handouts presenters posted here.
  5. Four new NCTE books came out in the last few weeks. Read more about Degree of Change: The MA in English Studies, edited by Margaret M. Strain and Rebecca C. Potter; Making Hybrids Work: An Institutional Framework for Blending Online and Face-to-Face Instruction in Higher Education by Joanna N. Paull and Jason Allen Snart; Public Pedagogy in Composition Studies by Ashley J. Holmes (CCCC/NCTE Studies in Writing & Rhetoric Series); and Grammar to Get Things Done: A Practical Guide for Teachers Anchored in Real-World Usage by Darren Crovitz and Michelle Devereaux (copublished with Routledge). And LISTEN as Darren and Michelle talk about their book on Education Talk Radio
