  • Percy L. Julian Middle School Students Share A Love For Reading

    Cicely Cobb, the seventh and eighth grade English Language Arts instructor at P. L. Julian Middle School spotted two of her advanced students with their noses in some of their favorite books recently. Their books of choice would be advanced for most people, but are at an especially high level for being middle school students, according to Cobb. She found seventh-grader Brianna Holland reading Zora Neale Hurston's “Their Eyes Were Watching God” and said that Holland's responses to assigned reading questions rival those that she has received from her college students. Meanwhile, another of her advanced seventh grade students, Ashley Arias, had her nose in her new favorite book “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas.
