they are even published!
Be a published book critic!
The Middle and High School English classes have been participating in a program sponsored by Brazos Bookstore and various publishers.
The program, called ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) supplies our classrooms with books not yet published. Students who read these books write brief reviews which, when the book is published, are placed on the shelves and hang down just below the books reviewed. These “book talkers” are read by all shoppers who look at the student-reviewed books, and can be the deciding factor in whether or not they purchase one of those books.
The picture above shows two of the reviews which are already on the shelves.
