A new mural at Rucker Stewart Middle School in Tennessee depicts a bookshelf featuring 11 titles students can expect to read during their time at the school. The literary project was initiated by seventh-grade English-language Arts teacher Emily Ingham to inspire students' love of reading, and more classroom murals -- including one featuring the Preamble to the US Constitution -- are planned.
