2012-2013 school year: fifty shades


To anticipate a question, I haven’t read Fifty Shades of Grey and I’m not planning to. A couple of my students have told me they’ve read book but no one’s asked to do a book report on it or anything. As a rule, I’d never tell a student they couldn’t read a book, but I would probably not allow it to be used for sustained silent reading in my class, in the same way I don’t allow students to read urban fiction for school projects.
