This is the place to go to see what my students are reading and recommending. Each week there will be at least one link to a book presentation done by a student. The books are chosen by the students and should be within the broad band of 6th grade reading. Presentations have been almost always slideshows (samples at the end). That's not a requirement though. The grade is a presentation grade.
