Do you remember reading great novels in high school? Some students go through high school and never read a novel from start to finish because they find the subject matter to be boring. My goal this year is to choose novels that my students will love to read as well as hook them into reading more often. I teach tenth and eleventh grade English to approximately 150-175 students per year. My students and I need class sets(35) of three interesting novels. The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier, Killing Mr. Griffin by Lois Duncan, and Martyn Pig by Kevin Brooks are three interesting novels about teenage peer pressure and telling lies. My students would benefit from reading these novels by increasing their comprehension and motivating them to read more. These novels have interesting plots and teenagers can easily relate to them. I want my students to love to read so that they may one day become avid readers. Thank you for investing in young minds!!
