But I'm not done... I am enrolled in a Fall online course!
I originally planned to do an Independent Study with one of my teachers on Newbery Medal books. The idea for the course was so well received that they decided to offer it as an entire course instead!
Here is our text list:
2011 Newbery Medal- Moon over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool;
2011 Newbery Honor- One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
2010 Newbery Medal- When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
2010 NewberyHonor- Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice by Phillip Hoose
2009 Newbery Medal-The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
2009 Newbery Honor- After Tupac & D Foster by Jacqueline Woodson
2008 Newbery Medal- Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village by Laura Amy Schlitz
2008Newbery Honor- Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curtis
2007 Newbery Medal- Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron
2007 Newbery Honor- Rules by Cynthia Lord
Taking this online course is part of my master plan to devote more time to the things I love (and stop overwhelming myself with teaching duties). Plus, once I'm done with this course I will have 24 credits towards my Masters. WOO HOO!!!
Will have more details on the class in upcoming posts!
Time for laundry! And some pizza!
