Read through the chat below to find titles of novels by diverse authors. You'll get ideas about nonfiction texts to use to address diverse issues. You'll also find titles of poems and plays to diversify your curriculum.

Hope you'll join us next week for another chat. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
