We have completed Across Five Aprils in Eighth Grade. This was a difficult book for all of us that I will not be including in the lineup next year. We will begin Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea next week. This book is entirely online and will be studied in depth in the classroom.
We completed Call of the Wild at the end of second quarter. This was a good book that promoted healthy discussion in class, and quality writing and analysis. Our next book will be William Golding's Lord of the Flies. I am excited to study this work with my Seventh Graders and discuss the dynamics of the group of boys as it relates to our Seventh Graders!
