See Junior Great Books in Action!
We love when teachers share photos of students using Great Books in their classrooms on social media! They remind of us of why we do what we do, while showing both how deeply students engage with our programs and the variety of ways teachers integrate them into their curriculum. For example, check out this photo of fifth-grade students from Taylor’s Creek Elementary School in Hinesville, Georgia, reading Junior Great Books while sitting on stability balls. Teacher Melissa Aspinall posted the photo on Twitter, and we were impressed by such a clever way to combine thinking about fitness, movement, and posture with English Language Arts.
