Musings on a Saturday Morning

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L’Engle

I’ve just started teaching Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird to year 10. Set 1 are enjoying it. My colleagues set 2, find it hard and are bucking against it as a text.

I don’t think I will tell my set one what L’Engle has said. I shall just be glad  🙂
