    We are doing a conversation with Walter Dean Myers, the author of the book,
    Fallen Angels at the end of April. He will be engaged with us in a live
    chat experience in May.

    If you are interested, please visit our website at http://www.mcet.edu or
    contact me and I will forward information to you.

    The novel is wonderful. It should be well received by students above grade
    8 or so. There is some difficult language and some adult situations (as
    they are called on HBO), but the overall message is very powerful and is
    worth it.

    I always think that a frank discussion with students prior to reading the
    novel is important.

    Good luck!

    Dear Athena,

    I see you are teaching Fallen Angels. What grade level? Have you
    taught it before? How is the book received by the students?
    I have several students who like the author and I do a unit on war
