It’s time once again for our semi-annual update on what’s new on MUF’s For Teachers/Librarians page!
We’ve added some great new resources and links to our regular categories. More on those in a moment, but first we want to tell you about two whole new sections just for you: MUF Posts for Teachers and Librarians! We’ve captured posts tagged for teachers and/or librarians in one convenient place. The posts are organized by date, so “drop on by” any time to see what we’ve written with you in mind.
Here’s an overview of the other great new resources and links we’ve added: (you’ll find them marked with New! on the For Teachers/Librarians page):
BLOGS for middle-grade reading and writing
The Pirate Tree: Authors who explore books in the context of social justice themes, from violence to gender to race to poverty.
