CSLA Session Description:
Why should elementary schools have all the fun? Advertise your collection with different themes each month using easy ideas that work for the upper grades. Catch-phrases like "Read the Movie," (books with movie tie-in) "Don't Read This!" (Banned Books Week) and "What's your problem?" (Teen problem novels) get their attention. Innovative materials and resources cited.
