This collection of books provides readers with both a buckle-your-seatbelt plotline and an inspirational life-lesson. They tell stories of times of crisis throughout history, weaving in stories about how a person—usually a young person—finds a way to rise to the challenges of his or her times. Your students will be moved by these books, making it easy for you to teach them higher-level interpretation skills.
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
