Grade 11 Applied Book List (Novels)

Grade Eleven Applied / College Level students…

Are normally reading below grade level.  Texts for them should be high interest and cover a wide range of themes and genres.  Students can often read above their reading level when presented with familiar material.  These students should work with comfortable material that allows them to explore complex thematic issues while reinforcing key literacy skills.

Please be aware that students cannot demonstrate their literacy skills if they are unable to process and decode their text.
