Book Preview: The Gardener

The GardenerThe Gardener by S.A. Bodeen

Paperback, 240 pages
Lexile: HL620L

I was not sure what to expect when I picked up The Gardener. In content area literacy classes we talk about how to integrate young adult literature into the curriculum, and I think this book would be perfect for a science class studying photosynthesis and plants. It raises current events issues and would be a fantastic starting point for conversation about world events. Here’s a way to make science more interesting and relevant for students who are more Language arts and history inclined.

Hear more about the book in this interview with S. A. Bodeen.
