Reflection: Shared Expectations Halfway Point Check-In - Section 2: Independent Work Time: Complete Discussion Boxes, Set 5


Something I really love about book groups is that it forges bonds between people who wouldn't normally hang out. When I saw these two boys in this photograph sweetly reading so close together, I couldn't help but take a picture. These boys happened to be placed in the same reading group. They were not friends when the unit began. However, I think since they were paired together during the unit, they found that they worked well together, and shared similar view points on the novel A Little Piece of Ground.
