New Philadelphia Illinois - Free Frank

New Philadelphia Illinois - Free Frank

This will be apart of our next unit of study in Literature. Check out the website and feel free to comment and ask questions.

Independant Reading

Middle School Students are required to read one book a month and write a book review. The next review is due Febraury 23, 2006. I have eliminated the number pages required but here are my recommendations:

6th 200 pages minimum
7th 220 pages minimum
8th 240 pages minimum

Students learning styles and abilities are different, I encourage you to visit the young adult literature section and your local library or bookstore. There are great books out there to be explored!

Literature Circles

Middle School students are exploring texts such as Legend of Buddy Bush, Tuck Everlasting, Hoops, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and many others. It is so amazing to see them work together and collaborate as they share ideas and opinions about the books. At home they are encouraged to do the same! Please invite questions about these texts.
