Donna T. Posted June 14, 2012 Share Posted June 14, 2012 Anyone know if Uncle Tom's Cabin is appropriate independent reading for an 8th grader? Or, as a read-aloud for a 5th and 8th grader? My teacher's manual lists it for 7+ but it seems I most often see it listed for 11th+. The TM says there is a "subtle portrayal of a slave owner's sexual advances to a slave" so I thought I'd ask the Hive. I started pre-reading it this summer but I haven't gotten very far and it's so long. I think this is one of those that we only got excerpts from when I was in school.
