Recently started teaching The Hate U Give in my classroom and could not be more excited!

I teach at an inner city school and the curriculum had us reading The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I substituted The Outsiders. The Outsiders might be about all white kids living in the Midwest in the ‘60s, but the gang/crime/poverty elements really hit home with my students. Many of them also have relatives that were a part of or influenced by the greaser/Mexican movement of the ‘60s culture. So cool to watch kids who have never finished a full text before read this one cover to cover and LOVE it.

Journey to the Center of the Earth came with our curriculum. We replaced it with something more relevant (and age appropriate) for our 6th graders.
