NEWBERY PANEL PARTICIPANTS - 6TH GRADE

In 1921 the first Newbery Award was offered by John Newbery as an incentive for better quality in childrenís books. This award is only given to citizenís or residents of the US.

For 22 years a class from Harrison County Middle School has worked with the masterís level 611 Analysis of Childrenís Literature class at the University of Kentucky.  This class is truly special because it is the only one of its kind in the state.

The students from both schools read the books on the list, analyze and critique each one, and finally attend and participate in the discussion at UK.  It is a tremendous undertaking and demands a great deal of effort and discipline on the part of each student.
