Time for some last-gasp winter Google Alerts from the interweb!
Southwest Middle School won the Gaston County, NC Battle of the Books competition. They had to answer questions about 27 different books--including The Brooklyn Nine! Congrats, guys!
And The Brooklyn Nine has made another state list! B9 was selected for the 2012 Oklahoma Sequoyah Master List! Thanks, Oklahoma. You're OK with me! (Yes, that's a postal abbreviation joke.)
I recently did a Skype visit with students at Upper Dauphin Area High School in Elizabethville, PA, and the local paper wrote up a great article about it. You can read it here.
And I'm starting to get alerts on Fantasy Baseball!
Mr. H at the SMS Guys Read blog loves the Fantasy Baseball poster I sent him...
Zoe posted a great summary/review of Fantasy Baseball at NextHub.com...
...and Ms. Certo at Hope Middle School recommends Fantasy Baseball as an independent reading selection for classrooms.
