YA Friday

It’s #YAFriday and today we’re sharing an article from teacher Brianna Crowley about why she reads YA and which YA novels she recommends to other educators.

“Teachers can also grow empathy outside of the classroom by reading books with characters who mirror our students’ unique circumstances, challenges, and experiences. Great writers inhabit their characters — understanding their thought processes, their motivations, and their fears. Great writing can open our hearts and minds to experiences beyond our own, and stories told well develop our empathy.”
