These are some of the books that I use with my eighth grade language arts and reading classes. Most of the writings by my students are based on these books. Be sure to read what my students have written and please leave a comment for the students.
We have begun reading the novel Mississippi Trial 1955 by Chris Crowe. Over the next few weeks, my students will post their personal reflections and summaries of the novel. They will also post reflections of two documentaries,The Murder of Emmett Till and The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till. We hope you enjoy their thoughts. Click on the Mississippi Trial category to view their reflections.
