I taught All American Boys (Jason Reynolds), The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian (Sherman Alexie), Unwind (Neal Shusterman), Freedom Writers (careful with this one due to situations), The Outsiders (S.E. Hinton)....Those are the ones I remember off the top of my head . Another good one would be Long Way Down (Jason Reynolds). He reads it on Audible and it's amazing!

I use two different books for teaching the Holocaust. One is "Surviving the Angel of Death and the other is "Voices of the Holocaust"



Angel is a memoir written by Eva Mozes Kor. She was one of the twins in Auschwitz and tells about what she went through with her sister.


Voices is a collection of primary and secondary sources as well as poems and personal letters. Split into five sections each section includes questions on the reading.

Dystopian books are all the rage right now, and they certainly know how to keep YA readers interested. One of my favorite books that I teach is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I teach it to my regular level Sophomore English class, but I know our SPED teacher uses it too. There's a great audio-recording voiced by Tim Robbins that's a little over five hours I think.

Another book/play that my students enjoy is A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry. Since it's divided into acts, there are natural breaks in the text if you wanted to fit parts of a project or paper in-between the acts like I do. There was a somewhat recent movie adaptation of the play where Sean Combs (P-Diddy...or whatever he's called now) plays the leading male character and it's pretty good!

Best of luck!

I am teaching SPED reading language arts and math next year. I have three classes of each. Anyone have good ideas of reading books that we could read as a class that actually will maintain the interest of my students???

I have four credits on Audible, and want to use them for my class this year but also want to get a class set of books too.
