I am having a tough time creating my reading list for 7th grade. The theme of 7th grade at my school is Myths and Legends. Last year we read stories from the book Myths and Legends, The Odyessey, Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and Beowulf. Most of my students were not interested which made the reading even more difficult. I think I need more emphasis on the Legends side of the theme. Does anyone have any suggestions for novels appropriate to the theme that 7th graders might enjoy?
