As I was reading this book, I kept thinking about my own children when they were deep into gaming as well how much my current students bring up video games during class. Adam’s book taps directly into a gamer’s passion and the conflicts with parents who are worried about their child’s habits. This book is realistic, relevant, compelling, and well-paced. Semi-Professionel will make a great addition to a classroom library or will be fun to read as a class. I hope the 2nd part comes out soon!
This is a classroom favorite during FVR! It's subject is appealing, and the language level is accessible to novice readers, but more advanced readers enjoy it too. It is a wonderful addition to the classroom library.
I am delighted with this book! I think my students are going to love it. I am setting up a 'trailer' to tempt them to choose it from our library for free reading. The layout, with the glossary at the bottom of each page should support independent reading and the flow of the story is engaging.
The level 1 books were so easy to read for first semester French I! The repetition of key phrases in various contexts makes it a great learning tool!
