48-Hour Book Challenge - Recommendations Please!

If you haven't signed up for the 48 Hour Book Challenge, head on over to MotherReader's place and sign up. Be sure to read the directions so that you will be ready to go when Friday rolls around. As incredibly tired as I am, I'm going to try and muddle through, so you should join us. You can do it!

In my quest to line up books to read, I have decided to open the comment lines for your input. I am teaching Secondary Curriculum Methods this fall and want to find several books for my students to consider using during their field experience. The class is largely filled with history majors (social studies teachers in the making), but I also have a majors in physics, Spanish and English. These students are all candidates for endorsement in grades 6-12, so middle grades, YA and adult fiction will work.

Since I need to read these books before recommending them, I am thinking of the following titles:
These are all books I have not read and would like to discover this weekend. What titles can you share that might make good additions to middle and secondary classrooms?

  1. Tricia,

    I'll look through my library collection to see if there are some books I'd recommend.

    I figured you'd be tired upon your return home.
