I've read many books through the semester, not as many as I might have wanted to but this class has completely opened my eyes to reading again. I loved reading when I was younger up until the years in school that we were forced to read certain books. While some of those books were good, some of them just did not interest me and it became a chore for me to read. I have tried to read many different types of books throughout the semester, but most of my multicultural ones have to do with the civil rights era or slavery. I can attribute that to having graduated with a Bachelor's degree in History from Loyola, I am drawn to certain historical events. I have learned a lot about how to choose a book for a classroom lesson or how to add a book into a lesson to enhance it. I found the hardest ones to review were the easy ones that quite often had a not so very good story line. I just went through the library and picked up books as I went when it came to the easy ones, there was no method to which ones I selected. I think after this class I will read more for fun and explore new books that I can hopefully use in the classroom to open my student's eyes the way you have opened mine. I really enjoyed exploring new Authors and Kevin Henkes definitely had to be my favorite. His stories always dealt with a problem that was resolved in the end and with events that children can relate to.
