I'm a sixth grade reading teacher and I'm reading this book to see if I should use it next year. Is it just me, or is it boring? I've heard it's such a great classic, and the beginning was really good, but now I can barely bring myself to finish it.
Does anyone have any suggestions/thoughts on reading level? Do you think sixth graders can read and understand it? It has such great historical background that I'd love to use it. I just want to make sure the level is appropriate.
I love this book so much, and on so many different levels. I read it for the first time probably in 5th grade and think it would be great for 6th grade.
I think it might lead to so many interesting discussions with 6th graders today, not just on the history. There's also the issue of bullying (the other apprentices), empathy, overcoming obstacles.
