If I Were a Teacher . . .
I guess I need to store these ideas for later. My grandma sent me a pile of books (I love that woman), and I just finished A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. It was really good! I suppose that it's not a show stopping, heart rending, rip through the pages read but it was just good. It's a coming of age story set in Brooklyn, NY in the 19-teens. And now that I'm no longer teaching of course, I think it would make a wonderful book for junior English -- American lit. Figures.
