Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed how they incorporate independent reading into their class time.

Read through the chat below to find out where teachers purchase books for their classrooms. You'll get ideas about how to stay up to date on new YA releases. You'll also find favorite recent titles to add to your classroom library.

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.
