The beginning of the school year is such an exciting time for teachers and students. For English teachers, determining the reading list for the year can be both thrilling and frustrating. Finding novels that are relevant, exciting and can easily be related to teenagers is challenging, to say the least. When a teacher can find a curricular connection to high-level interest and relevant books, it’s like finding a world full of rainbows, unicorns, and calorie-free chocolate. It’s also a world where a love for reading can develop into a passion. I have chosen a book that tops my own personal list of favorite books, “Nineteen Minutes” by Jodi Picoult. Studying this book will give my students the opportunity to practice the study of figurative language, vocabulary, and characterization. They will also practice critical thinking, discussion skills, and the ability to see a situation through different perspectives. Because of the age of the characters, students will make comparisons to themselves and others that they know. The moral issues raised include peer pressure, popularity, self-image, school bullying, teen dating violence, suicide, and communication barriers between adolescents and adults.
