In Search of the Novel:Teacher-TalkNovel

Subject: RE: Question-Reluctant Readers

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!

Chris

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
literature.
