  • Historical Fiction Novels
    Hello there! 

    We are in the middle of second quarter and just started a new unit called Examining Perspectives. In this unit, students will be reading a historical fiction novel based on the World War II/Holocaust time period. The book will be read individually, but students will be placed in a book group with other students to talk about the book, complete activities, and analyze the story together. Please see the due dates box for checkpoint reading goals. Books need to be fully read by Friday, December 8th (start of class). I encourage all parents to discuss the book with your child, and help support them in reading at home as well. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!
