4th Nine Weeks  

This 9 weeks, we will be answering the essential question, "How do we tell our story?"

 

All texts read will be centered around this question.

 

The first extended text we will read in class is Nothing but the Truth by Avi.

The second extended text will be a biography/autobiography/memoir of the student's choosing. They will have either check this book out of the library or purchase. Details will be sent out at a later date.


Welcome! ***2016-2017***  

Summer is almost up! I am excited to begin the 2017-2018 school year!  The book supply list is on the homepage of Southaven Middle School, but here are some of the books we will read and analyze in

Pre-AP:

 

The Giver by Lois Lowry  1st NINE WEEKS

Throw Like a Girl by Jennie Finch

The Closer (YA Edition) by Mariano Rivera

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein

The Book Thief by Marcus Zuzak

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

Nothing But the Truth by Avi

Autobiography/Biography/Memoir of Student's choosing (150+ pages)

 

You will not need to buy these books at this time. I have a class set of most of them, but you may want to purchase (when the time comes) just in case you think your child needs extra time to read. I will keep you updated on that as well!

 

Feel free to email me with any questions. Thank you and have a wonderful rest of the summer!
