Voices from the Middle Podcast, Vol. 25, Episode 8

In this episode, we have the fourth installment of our Teacher on the Street segment, where our correspondent, Alex Corbitt, talks with his seventh graders at MS 331 in the Bronx, NY, to discuss the impact of student choice and culturally responsive book clubs. Alex's students talk about the importance of offering opportunities to learn about their own cultures as well as other cultures through classroom texts and how fiction provides them with unique opportunities to learn about characters from other parts of the world.
