8th graders are finished with the “Jacob, Have I Loved” book and will start reading 3 books (House on Mango Street, Trash, Kiffe Kiffe Tomorrow) for the 2nd quarter all relating journal type of writings and very personal stories.  Students will rotate these books and compare and contrasts the different experiences of the characters from these books.
