Wheeler 8th Grade English Summer Reading 2018


Rising 8th graders should read books of choice in any genre all summer long, but for required summer reading, they should purchase, read, and bring to school in September a print copy of Donna Jo Napoli's National Geographic Treasury of Greek Mythology: Classic Stories of Gods, Goddesses, Heroes, & Monsters (2011). Because we'll use this book starting day 1 of classes, I encourage students to read it during the last few weeks of summer vacation, so the stories and characters are fresh in your minds as we start our English 8 adventures.

Thank you,

Mrs. Von Reinhart

Profiles In Courage For Our Time, edited by Caroline Kennedy.

Students should read the Introduction and profiles of James Florio, John McCain and Russell Feingold, Hilda Solis, John Lewis and Profiles in Courage Award 2002.

Students in 8th Grade History use a Live Binder (supplemented by handouts) in place of a conventional textbook which is effectively a digital course packet. The Live Binder uses a variety of media, primary source documents and interactive features.
