School Teachers Turn Old Lockers Into Literary Works of Art

At Biloxi Junior High School, the teachers are spending their summer pretty productively. They’re taking an entire hallway lined with dull green (currently unused) lockers and they’re repainting each and everyone of them — 189 in total. By the time students return in the fall, each locker will look like the spine of a famous book, and the hallway will be known as the “Avenue of Literature.” One teacher told WLOX, “We want students to come back to school in August and … be absolutely amazed with what we’ve done and be curious. We want that to be the spark for reading in our classrooms… We’re hoping the students come and they become completely immersed in a collection” that contains everything from Watership Down and Johnny Tremain to books in the Twilight series, reports Electric Lit.
