Baraboo Middle School Earns $2,000 Grant for Reading Program

English teacher Jane McMahon created "Books, Blogs and Brouhaha" with the help of library media specialist Kelly Steiner to generate interest in reading and won a $2,000 grant from Wisconsin Retired Educators to continue the program. The Jack Young Middle School students read graphic novels and other works, discussed them in class and via a blog, and used podcasts and other technology to share their impressions of the books, according to a report in the Baraboo News Republic.
