Novel Studies Starting

8th Grade Literature will be starting a novel study on the non-fiction book, Four Perfect Pebbles.  This goes along with what students will be studying (WWII and the Holocaust) in Social Studies.

7th Grade students will be starting a book called, My Brother Sam is Dead.  It is about a family’s struggles during the American Revolution.  

During a novel study, students will still read for AR, read articles in the Achieve 3000 online program, and complete the activities.  Students will not write thought question responses in Achieve.  

Students will be expected to read and respond to text for homework, as well as in class.  

I think the classes will really enjoy both of these stories!
