May 12, 2009

Just so you know this whole thing hasn't been a hallucination. Nor is the plan to reissue Carter Beats the Devil as my Collected Works (though that would rock).

Details here.

I am trying to got my son's English teacher to add Carter Beats the Devil to their approved reading list. Do you have an idea what the reading level and/or lexile score should be?

Dear TMRDA --

Going on faith that you're a real person (if you click on your id, you know where you end up, right? Doesn't exactly inspire confidence), thank you for trying to introduce Carter to the kids. Quite a few 11th and 12th grade classes seem to teach it with success. It's possible that younger classes also read it but that I just don't know about it. I hope that answers your question and that you actually won something, if you know what I mean.

tmrda,

We use CBTD in our interdisciplinary (English/history) class. We don't have to submit a lexile/reading level to get a book approved -- my teaching partner did the lifting on the approval five or six years ago -- but the book has met with no resistance and lots of love from both students and parents.
