The Year of Miss Agnes ePub download

When a new teacher comes to their remote Alaskan town, ten-year-old Frederika and her classmates believe that this teacher will leave as quickly as all the rest, but Miss Agnes is different.
I absolutely loved Miss Agnes' character. I am getting my BSE in elementary education, and I absolutely love reading books that have to do with teachers, especially teachers of the old days. Miss Agnes is a true teacher in every sense of the word. Her teaching style is very much like mine - outside of the box.

Each of the students discover individual talents under Miss Agnes' leadership. You can see the children growing as individual people in every chapter. By the end of the book, you have fallen in love with Miss Agnes, Fred (Frederika), Bertha, Martha, Jimmy Joe, Bokko, and the others on Kanakuk Mountain.

Loved the style writing - told from the viewpoint of student Fred (Frederika).
I used to live in Fairbanks ,Alaska and this story brought back memories of Alaska. I wish I had known Miss Agnes.
It's so easy
This is a very interesting book set in The far north after the Second World War. It she's how people lived even then . It had not changed a great deal. It shows how a good teacher can make the difference in children wanting to learn
One of my all time favorite books to read to my students! Always a hit!

Awesome book about village life in Alaska. Read the sequel too!!
This book made me realize the power of teaching in such a refreshing way. Instilling a desire to learn within the hearts of children is the only way to progress. No one needs a test to measure that kind of learning. It is a natural result of enthusiasm and contagion wrought by a thoughtful, loving teacher. Hooray for Miss Agnes and wonderful teachers everywhere!
This is a cute book, unfortunately, my daughter's teacher would not count it as a "historical" fiction, but still a good story.
I used this for a homeschool unit study. We are studying American geography, this book was perfect for Alaska. Too many life lessons to list, but some are learning about being deaf, dealing with death and loss, and social and cultural differences. My daughter is 9, she really enjoyed this book.
