Wow. As an "old" teacher teaching a "new" subject, I learned a lot from this. Thank you for sharing it. I kind of stumbled through my first year as an ELA-R teacher, as you said, with the few books I could beg, borrow, and buy, and always struggled with how to organize them. The students, of course, used my same system - none. I'm going to try a better system this year!
