Greetings faithful readers! I apologize for my hiatus from this blog during the summer. While it may not seem so, I have been busy writing. For your enjoyment, I have posted links below to two book reviews I have written for MiddleWeb, one just posted today, and one from March. If you haven’t heard of it, MiddleWeb is a great online resource of book reviews, teaching strategies, and more for Middle School teachers in any content area. Head on over and check it out!
