2012 HB Awesome Awards! (PART ONE)

It’s time for the big reveal! Here are the first chunk of results to our 2012 HB Awesome Awards, as voted by my students.

The book awards got their name based on several student suggestions. Almost all the awards start with the word “Best,” so some wanted to call them the B Awards. The H comes from my last name, Houghton, and AWESOME has kind of been our word for the year — as a class, it seems to be the best word we can find when something is really interesting/great/cool.
