What are your thoughts on read aloud in middle school? I know of a teacher who used to work in my district who did it, and I'm all for it. Now I will be teaching 8th grade English (with one reading class) this year, and I kind of want to incorporate it. Any thoughts? If you're a fan, does anyone have any books they'd suggest using for a read aloud with 8th graders? I'm more familiar with the upper elementary kids.
