Hi everyone! I am going to do lit circles this year in my 7th grade class and I just wanted to hear what books you use in middle school for lit circles? I'd love to hear any of them, but especially any more recent books that you like using. For now I'm just using the books that other teachers on the team have used before for this quarter; they are all good books but some of them (The Red Badge of Courage) the kids inherently think are going to be bad just because they are not new. I want the kids to be really interested in their options for next quarter! Thanks, I'm excited to see what you guys are thinking. PS I was thinking Rules (Cynthia Lord?), but I'm not sure if that is a little young. I read it with my 5th graders when I student taught.
