Bring contemporary fiction into your secondary classroom with Carve in the Classroom.
“Carnival” by Scott Atkinson is a story that reveals itself little by little, affording the reader a startling “aha!” moment when suddenly everything makes sense. On the surface it is the story of a man and a child sharing the pleasures of a carnival, but underneath is a tale of loss and loneliness and the dangers in our world. It is also a story that makes the reader consider the realities of social class in contemporary America.
