These books will grab the attention of students who love the fast-paced plots of classic adventure stories, but this collection is also designed to extend students' interests beyond this shelf. A student who reads an adventure book set in an alternative world will be more likely to try a fantasy or dystopian novel, while reader who loves the format of an adventure graphic novel may pick up historical fiction graphic novels as well. Students who fall in love with the authors and formats in this collection will find themselves broadening their reading interests.
The books in this library shelf are also included in the complete Grade 8 Classroom Library. For complete details about the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project Classroom Libraries please visit CalkinsLibraries.com.
