    Hello all. I teach 6th grade Reading in a Junior High setting and am looking for a new novel I can order. I taught Hatchet a few years ago and the students had already been taught this in 5th grade. Nothing like hearing the student complain and whine.
    I would like something that would be high interest, yet I can pull skills from (yippee for TAKS - not.)

    Thanks!!

    :D

    I taught reading several years ago and these are the novels we were required to teach. The high group read The giver or Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry. All mixed groups read Sticks (may be out of print), Holes, and Lily's Crossing. I loved all of them, except maybe The Giver.
