Welcome to The Literary Archives!

Hey there!

Hi! I’m Amanda Posten — English teacher, reader, and writer. Welcome to the home of The Literary Archives where you can find a continually growing number of resources and book recommendations to help you find success and confidence in the classroom.

About The Literary Archives

The Literary Archives started out as a place to review books and share my opinions. It has since grown into a platform that is centered around helping teachers gain confidence and find success in their classroom.

Every month, you can expect new posts containing:

  • Book reviews with teacher recommendations from a wide variety of genres.
  • Tips, ideas, and resources for teaching reading.
  • Tips, ideas, and resources for teaching writing.
  • Other tips, ideas, and resources about being a teacher, reader, and writer.

Because I am currently teaching high school, most of the posts and recommendations are creating with 9th-12th grade in mind. But I offer suggestions and modifications for Middle School and younger as often as I can!

Thanks for visiting!

Not a teacher? Not a problem!

I’ll post content every month that can be read and enjoyed without a teaching background. From book reviews to author interviews, there is something here for everyone.
