READING ENRICHMENT LISTS FOR OHIO SOCIAL STUDIES GRADES 7 AND 8

A great way to peak student interest in social studies is to introduce a topic with an appropriate work of fiction or non-fiction. As students become engaged by something they can relate to, they form questions that lead to further inquiry. One of our Ohio Resource Center Ambassadors, Shirley Herzog, a retired teacher, has graciously agreed to share her social studies reading enrichment lists, organized by topic for grades 7 and 8. While the lists reflect content from the 2003 standards, much of the content will align with the New Ohio Learning Standards: K-12 Social Studies. Also, books related to content that has been shifted upward or downward in grade level could benefit students as Hi-Lo books.

Take a look at the lists and let me know what you think!

    I’d be glad to help anyone with questions about my lists/ I am a voracious reader of YA lit and strongly believe reading helps kids make connections that stick when it relates to social studies.
