Bullying program book picked by Northdale student
The selection for this year’s One Book, One Community program at Northdale Middle School came directly from the program’s target audience: a student.
Beth Neil, a reading specialist and English Language Arts (ELA) department leader, had purchased “Bystander,” by James Preller at a book fair.
She put the book out for students to read and one of her students picked it up to read.
“Because I teach reading strategies, I don’t always have engaged readers, but he reported all the way through it and loved it,” Neil said. See more in ABC Newspapers story.
