What Makes a Shadow? | Clyde Robert Bulla
post image

What Makes a Shadow? is a great NF book all about what shadows can be made written by Clyde Robert Bulla and illustrated by June Otani This book would be a great RA or SR. I used this book in my classroom within my shadow unit where we taught the kids all about them. They always were so excited to go outside and see their shadow.

AlyssaB An UDL strategy would be 1.3 which offers alternatives for visual information. An ESOL strategy would be 36 which is asking numerous questions which require higher level thinking responds. A great resource would be http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/casting-shadows-a... which gives different sessions on what you could involve when teaching shadows. #UCFLAE3414F19 1mo

Shadows | John Saul
post image

They call it the Academy. A secluded, cliff-top mansion overlooking the rugged Pacific coast. A school for children gifted -- or cursed -- with extraordinary minds. Children soon to come under the influence of an intelligence even more brilliant than their own -- and unspeakably evil. For within this mind a dark plan is taking form. A plan so horrifying, no one will believe it. No one but the children.

Chrissyreadit John Saul has been around forever. 1mo
JoScho @Chrissyreadit yeah he has. I have never read any of his books. 1mo
Chrissyreadit What??? I devoured them in high school but have no actual memory of them- did you like this one? 1mo
Reggie @Chrissyreadit I read like 3 of his books and in every one I read the child/kid protagonist dies. They were good but no happy endings here. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @Reggie yeah- I think in HS I was ok with dark and creepy - I loved horror - but once I had kids I couldn‘t do it anymore. This year is my first time engaging in the genre since then and my teens are 15 and 17. I‘m sure I would not like John Saul now. (edited) 1mo

readordierachel @Reggie Oh, I like that interpretation! For some reason I kept picturing a hand... 1mo
vivastory @readordierachel I was also picturing a hand. I like the idea of it being a heart, of course if this was a David Lynch movie it'd be an ear 😬 @Reggie 1mo

“Entering the #Shadow World can be deadly. Do so at your own risk.“

Another classic teen #90sHorror

Back in the day, I actually preferred The Forbidden Game trilogy to The Vampire Diaries series.
