Phoenix Academy English teachers Andra Mack and Anneleise Dickens began a school-wide book study of the novel The Hate U Give, by Angie Thomas. This award-winning novel has been read in schools all over, and the film adaptation is to open October 19. Students at Phoenix each received a copy of the book, have assigned chapters to read each week, and are invited to participate weekly in both online and face-to-face discussions. The first discussion was held Wednesday, September 12 and nearly 30 students attended.
Once the novel is completed, the group will see the film version and meet to compare and contrast the book with the movie. Students are excited to read the book, which makes most every teacher happy! Some students have already finished reading.
To learn more about the book, you can find it at Amazon.
