I teach 7th & 8th grade. We've read Dracula in 7th and Frankenstein in 8th. We also had a popular short story unit with Flowers for Algernon. They highly enjoyed all of them!


Harry Potter
Wrinkle in Time
Gregor the Overlander


We read Iqbal, A Long Walk to Water, Home of the Brave, and many others. We are doing lit circles this year and so students have an opportunity to read a variety of novels.

We read Sing Down The Moon, Soft Rain, Long Way From Chicago so far this year. Next is Devil’s Arithmetic, Greek Myths

What grades? I teach K-5 so I use many.
