Titles, excerpts, reviews and discussion guides
"Come discover the 2012-2013 South Carolina Book Awards, where each title is chosen to encourage students to read good quality contemporary literature."
The downloadable discussion guides (sample) give an overview of the title and suggest some ideas for discussion, as well as extension activities. Great for supporting lit circle titles. (The South Carolina Junior Book Award nominees are appropriate for 6-8 grade levels. Elementary and High School titles are linked in the sidebar.)
