Mock Newbery Reading Group Interviews Two Award-winning Authors

At the beginning of the school year, 50 sixth grade students were chosen to participate in the D. C. Everest (DCE) Middle School Mock Newbery Reading Group led by Beth Martin, Library Media Specialist. The group, begun in 2008, provides students with the opportunity to read and discuss books in contention for the prestigious John Newbery Medal, which is awarded annually by the American Library Association for the most distinguished American children’s book. Members of the Mock Newbery Reading Group were provided with a list of 12 books and asked to read a minimum of five. “Most of the group read more than five books and some read all 12,” noted Martin. “Students were so enthused to read the books, which represent the best that American authors have to offer.” For three months the group met on a weekly basis to discuss and evaluate the books, compose book reviews and prepare for author interviews. “Students discussed the books in person and online using the Moodle platform. Admittedly, at times it was a challenge for them to keep the book discussions academic — they had a lot to say. But they worked hard to compare the books to the Newbery criteria and support their opinions with evidence. The students had strong opinions, so the discussions were lively.” As a result, students learned how to evaluate the books based on interpretation of theme/concept; presentation of information; plot development; characterization; setting/tone and style. As a final project, each of the students will complete a video book trailer that will be shared throughout the school. On January 6, members of the group voted on their favorites and overwhelmingly chose The War that Saved My Life, by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. Students had the distinct pleasure of interviewing the author via Skype in November. Students wrote and asked the questions for the interview session and were excited to learn that Ms. Bradley is working on a sequel to the novel. On January 11, the group watched the American Library Association’s live webcast of the Youth Media Awards that includes the announcement of the Newbery Medal winner and Honor books, as well as many other awards. Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena was chosen as the winner. The War that Saved my Life, (the group favorite) was selected as the Newbery Honor Book (Silver). In November, students also had the opportunity to interview Rita Williams-Garcia, the author of Gone Crazy in Alabama, which received the Corretta Scott King (Author) Book Award. Students also skyped with Jonathan Hunt, co-author of the School Library Journal’s Heavy Metal Blog and former member of the Newbery Committee. “Mr. Hunt gave students the inside scoop on what it’s […]
