Guiding Students Toward What They Might Like to Read


Found in this week's . . . 


“ 'Over my 40-year teaching career, I can vividly recollect three books that challenged my colleagues and me — Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Mathabane’s Kaffir Boy, and Cecily von Ziegesar’s Gossip Girl series — in three different schools, each 10 years apart.'

Former Head of School Dane Peters writes from experience about one of every educator’s greatest challenges: making book recommendations when you have to balance what students like, what’s popular, and what parents think is appropriate. Also featured in the current issue of the online Independent Teacher magazine is thoughtful coverage on everything from teaching world religions to using the Socratic method.”


The NAIS Bulletin delivers timely news and links to resources about major issues affecting the independent school community. If your colleagues would like to receive the Bulletin, please have them email schoolupdate@nais.org.
