We're restructuring next year due to our budget. The restructuring is going to cut into the time spent in some subjects, history in particular. We're looking to use novels to support and enhance the topics covered in our American History classes. Does anyone have suggestions of quallity novels for 7th and 8th graders that we should consider? The reading levels can range from 6th grade to 10th. The upcoming 7th grade class is very young, so if you know the material may be difficult for young 12 year-olds, noting that would be helpful. Pieces of literature I'm going to look into so far include: My Brother Sam is Dead The Crucible Number the Stars (easy read for this age group, but a good connection to history) Assorted bigoraphies Thanks in advance for all suggestions!
