10th Grade Reading List

Another year, another reading list – As I look back over the blog, I realize I only started sharing our reading list a few short years ago. I wish now I would have started it sooner, so I could have a list to share without digging through all of my files that are stored away. I think that is something I’ll be working on in the future.

In the past, I over planned with books to read since I was the one “in charge” of all the planning. I wanted to make sure I was able to get books from the library if another was unavailable. Now that Jamie is older and has more say in what he does in school, I’ve allowed him to choose the books this year for History reading. – I’m okay with this because honestly, it is about QUALITY, NOT about QUANTITY.

Since we are studying Baptist History this year, I wanted us to read together books that pertain to this subject. A friend of mine recommended the following:

The Bible Makes Us Baptists by Mary E. Bamford

Faithful Baptist Witness by Phil Stringer

Our Literature course has us reading some wonderful classic books.

Benjamin Franklin The Autobigraphy and OTher Writings by Benjamin Franklin

Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass an American Slave by Frederick Douglass

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

The Scarlett Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

For US History, I’m excited because Jamie is excited. We choose at least one book per time era until we got to WW2 and then he wanted to choose them all. This kid loves WW2 history. Sadly, I could not find a book about the war on terrorism without horrible language. If I do, I’ll add it.

Written in Bone: Buried Lives of Jamestown and Colonial Maryland by Sally M. Walker

Sacajawea by Joseph Brucha

Under Siege! Three Children at the Civil War Battle for Vicksburg by Andrea Warren

Sergeant York Last of the Long Hunters by Tom Skeyhill

Soldier Boys by Dean Hughes

If you Survive: From Normandy to the Battle of the Bulge by George Wilson

Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank

I Pledge Allegiance by Chris Lynch

As you can see we are not overloaded with reading this year. But I am excited Jamie chose the books he wanted to read for history.
