I am going to do a novel unit with my 7th and 8th graders. I have several to choose from. I'm trying to go with one that the kids will enjoy (most are not big readers) and that I will be able to find the most resources for. I want to tie this in with the research project, so something with historical significance would probably work best. Here are my choices: 7th: A Wrinkle in Time Nothing But the Truth Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry Call of the Wild The Pearl Where the Red Fern Grows 8th: Animal Farm The Outsiders The Giver Dogsong What would you pick? Thanks in advance!
