Book Talk with Ariel Sacks '06
The Bank Street College Alumni Association invites you to a Book Talk with Ariel Sacks’ 06, author of Whole Novels for the Whole Class: A Student-Centered Approach
"Reminiscent of masterworks, Ariel's book is an exquisite blending of the best in literacy theory and classroom practice that could only be written by someone who actually does this every day with real students."
—Renee A. Moore, NBCT, English teacher, author, and education blogger.
Whole Novels is a practical, field-tested guide to implementing a student-centered literature program that promotes critical thinking and literary understanding through the study of novels with middle school students. Rather than using novels simply to teach basic literacy skills and comprehension strategies, Whole Novels approaches literature as art.
