Example: At your T.A.‘s suggestion, you’ve picked a children’s book on bullying to share with your grade two class. You love the story, but also have doubts about whether it is age-appropriate or uses overly harsh language.
- Reading several published reviews on the book will help you judge its appropriateness and appeal.
- Reviews will generally discuss any sensitive or potentially problematic material.
- A glowing review can give you confidence that you are truly sharing something of value with your students.
- If the reviewer recommends the title, you can use this information to justify choices to parents/ administrators as needed.
