Literature and the Arts

Hi, this week our topic will be Literature and the Arts Links,

It is one small but cute category from the Tutor/mentor Connection link library.
[ Links Library >> Homework help, tutoring resources >> Literature and the Arts ]


Guys read
Guys read is site dedicated to guy tested and guy approved books.

Why, how, who? The data from data from the National Center for Education Statistic suggest that boys consistently score lower than girls on national reading and writing tests.

In an effort to engage boys in reading, former schoolteacher Jon Scieszka has launched an Internet initiative called Guys Read. The idea is to provide boys a place to meet and talk about reading.

So, boys check it. Girls are welcome.
