The Book Boys Celebrate Maya Lin
by Traci Swain
Enhance your students’ reading experience of Maya Lin: Artist-Architect of Light and Lines by Jeanne Walker Harvey, illustrated by Dow Phumiruk, with this exclusive, classroom-friendly Book Boys video!
As we look forward to Women’s History Month, let’s join Book Boys Elliott, Allister, and Max as they take a closer look at the life of artist and architect Maya Lin and admire her most famous work, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC.
Play the video for your students either before or after reading Maya Lin: Artist-Architect of Light and Lines to enrich their reading experience and provide additional context for Maya’s inspiring story.
This documentary-style video will help students:
• Raise their social, emotional, and world awareness
• Discover more about American history and connect with the past
• Identify with a living legend who achieved great feats as a student
Consider incorporating this book and video into your lesson plan via writing prompts that invite students to reflect on what they learned.
Have your students ever gone on a field trip to a memorial? Which one? What did they find most meaningful about the visit? We’d love to hear from you! Please share with us on social media using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
These three guys from different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs formed a book group. Each week, they choose a new book to read together. Then they meet, discuss, and create fun and entertaining videos to help kids discover—and relate to—titles offered by Scholastic Book Clubs.
While the Book Boys come from diverse backgrounds and were definitely different growing up, they all have one thing in common: they really want to get kids excited about books and reading.
