Today I was listening to three of my male students talk. We were walking to the computer lab and I was behind them. The conversation went something like this between the boys:
"Man, I wish Miss Alpine had given us more time to read."
"I know, I can't wait to find out what happens in the book."
"Did you get to the part yet where Clay listens to his side of the tape?"
"No, I keep wanting to peek ahead."
"Me too! I wonder what he did to get on the tape?"
"It has to be something bad."
"I know, I need to find out."
I couldn't believe it! For real!?! Teenage boys wanting more reading time and talking about books?!
I LOVED IT!
Yay to a great start of the school year! Go YA literature!
