A comment about your "book talk papers". Be sure to connect the articles from Rethinking our Classrooms directly to the texts. For example, you might discuss the article on tracking when you think about how a students like Christopher (from The Curious Incident...) might be included in a regular school environment. You should cite the chapter from Rethinking Our Classrooms that you draw from in your papers.
