The Noisy Classroom
Angela Shanté, Alison Hawkins
- Talented debut author’s goal is to help with student fears associated with transition in school.
- The author taught children for ten years and wanted to highlight the nontraditional classroom in a positive and inspiring way. “This classroom was much like my classroom” she says. “I believed in having fun, playing games, moving around, dancing, and enjoying the education experience [for the students and myself]. I think my classroom was dubbed ‘The Noisy Classroom’ because of it. I’ve found students can work, they can learn, they can be successful… and they can do so in a nontraditional way.”
- Excellent diversity pick full of humor and positive SEL character traits.
