Educators are constantly on the hunt for full-length books that are both engaging and appropriate to student grade levels. How do we find reading materials that can sustain student interest, address relevant themes, improve language skills, and complement lessons we are already using in the classroom?

Using full-length books by or about Medal of Honor recipients will address these concerns and guide students through an even deeper exploration of character values. Students will learn that often the life stories of recipients are even more important than their actions on the battlefield; they will recognize heroism in real-life people who come from all walks of life and all parts of the country. In this webinar, Dana Maddock reviewed several full-length books by or about Medal of Honor recipients and demonstrate how to select books that will inform — and inspire — you and your students.
