UP TO MR. O.
York : Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1998
you ever had a teacher who you thought the world of? A teacher who
you felt could do no wrong? Then you can understand how Maggie McIntosh
feels about her biology teacher, Mr. O. He starts off each class
with a joke and wears the greatest ties. Maggie thinks he's the greatest
teacher ever. But what happens when that teacher does something that
you think is morally wrong? Do you have the courage to say so.
That's what Maggie finds herself doing when Mr. O announces that they will
be dissecting animals in biology class. At first Maggie tries to
go along with the experiment. She just can't get herself to dissect
an earthworm though. Then comes the fish and she refuses to participate.
If Maggie truly believes that dissecting animals is wrong, how can she
believe in Mr. O again? Join Maggie as she comes to terms with her
feelings and begins STANDING UP TO MR. O.
