When I worked with a Psychology Teacher in linking an ESL class we
worked on The Lottery Rose which did a good job of showing the
progressive physical and psychological needs, actions, and reactions.  
It also highly engaged the students.

I have used Richard Wright's Native Son in my reading class.  I have
found
it to be a very good discussion piece, complex on many levels, and
appropriate for adults.

Subject: suggestions for novels

Dear Listers,

A colleague of mine is looking for a novel to use with college 
developmental reading students.  She used _The Power of One_ this 
semester, but finds that it is a bit too long for her purposes.  She
has 
incorporated the reading into her class time, with the instructor 
reading part out loud and the students completing the assigned reading

silently before responding in a reading journal.  She wants to continue

the activity, but is looking for suggestions of contemporary books that

will appeal to students and have the same literary value, but that are

shorter or a 'quicker' read.  Do any of you have some suggestions of 
material that is appropriate for college level students?

I know she will appreciate any ideas.  You may respond to the list or
to 
me directly.

Thanks!
       Ann
