For future reference

This idea was mentioned on the Middle School Lit listserv and I LOVE it!  I am saving it here for possible use next year.

Middle School Lit is a great listserv for upper-grade/intermediate teachers.  I tend to lurk, but I get a lot of great ideas and inspiration from the amazing teachers who post.  I highly recommend joining if you teach 5th grade and up!

“Lowry’s “Giver,” “Gathering Blue” and “Messenger”–this is during our
novel study unit. Students ‘draw books’ out of a hat==1/2 read The
Giver, while the other half read GB. We all then read Messenger, and
in the end, a Giver student and a GB student have to come together to
create a culminating project over Messenger. It’s pretty neat how they
get excited to explain how their book plays a part in Messenger. ” – user glfprncs
