You forgot to eat or sleep because you couldn't put it down. And then became really annoyed when the movie version got it wrong. It wasn't that long ago when you felt the power of a great book. Now share it with someone else.


This is a crowdsourcing project to identify the best book for teens - as voted by NJ. The top choice will be put in 47 local schools. And all participants are eligible to win a Kindle. While we value an official reading list as much as the next person, we have more faith in you.

Our district has This is an awesome website that has interactive gizmos that students can manipulate. There are math and science gizmos.  Each gizmo has worksheets and a quiz that can be used. You can download the worksheets and modify them as needed. Once you modify the worksheet to meet your needs then you can upload your worksheet to the site for other teachers to use. There is an app for this site and they are currently working on transitioning all the gizmos over so they can be used on an ipad. I highly recommend this site! The students will love it!
