Holiday/Bring Ballads into Classrooms Contest! BALLADS OF SUBURBIA
Help me get BALLADS OF SUBURBIA into high school classrooms and libraries! This would be a huge way to get the book into the hands of more teen readers who need it. Getting my book used in the classroom would be a huge honor and boost for me. And now I have a resource to share with teachers. A lovely teacher from Arizona created a super cool interactive teaching resource website for BALLADS OF SUBURBIA: http://balladsofsuburbia.weebly.com/ It's got activities to do with the book, resources on the themes in the book, music, and an exclusive interview with me. It will make BALLADS easy to use in the classroom for projects or extra credit. Now I just have to figure out how to let the teachers know about it. Perhaps you guys can help, especially those of you in high school or still in touch with the teachers you loved from high school!
