We begin school the Monday before the start of the Olympics and I am planning a book display to entice our students to read about the commitment, challenge, and history behind the Olympic Games. I will also pull books concerning China (especially apropos for the 7th graders who study China this year) for check out during orientations. In the fiction area, I will pull books by Chinese-American authors like Laurence Yep, Lisa Yee, Adeline Yen Mah, and Lensey Namioka.
How will you incorporate the Olympics in your school’s media center?
