Reviews – English Lessons & Other Stories
Gather books by Walter Dean Myers for students to select for independent reading or form book clubs around select titles. One of the great powers that stories have is that when we see ourselves represented in the pages of a book it reminds us that we are not alone. Characters can provide cultural mirrors for us but they can also become mirrors when they experience the same emotions we do.

An Uprising. A Revolution. What is The Classroom Bookshelf? Each Monday, The Classroom Bookshelf posts an entry on a recently published book for children or young adults. Our goal is to identify books that can be used in K-8 classrooms in a variety of ways. Slowly, almost innocuously, Baldwin reveals the unseen country her characters inhabit, only to allow this world to withdraw and emerge once again.
However modern or westernized they might be, Baldwin's characters are always outsiders who inhabit silence and learn to use it, sometimes as a refuge, sometimes as a weapon. Some remain prisoners of silence, choking on their own knowledge. Some use silence as a weapon against their oppressors. Others harness its power to seize their freedom.
