This coming September I will be changing my role from a Resource and ELL specialist teacher at the elementary level, to a high school ELL teacher. In preparation for this change I have been excited to explore new reading material that I can use in my practice. The list below was gathered from first looking into the high school version of Tribes Learning Communities, which I'm really excited to explore, and then a google search on "picture books for teenagers." In ELL it can be challenging to engage early language learning in interesting content that is at their reading level, and so I was inspired to explore how to use picture books in the ELL secondary classroom. The below books are titles I'm exited to crack the cover of and let my mind wonder to a creative place of planning for September.
