Rising 9 Students (ESOL 4/Transitional 9, Regular 9, Team Taught, HN 9): Rising 9th grade students will need to read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. English 9 teachers intend for the reading to be assessed within the first two to three weeks of the semester. All ninth-grade students will take a formal assessment on the reading in their English classes, so it is important that students review their summer reading before returning to school. Summer Reading Letter
Honors Extension: In addition to reading The Hunger Games, all students enrolled in an Honors English 9 section will need to read the play Antigone by Sophocles. Students in Honors 9 are expected to come to school on the first day with their Double Entry Journal assignment completed. See attachment for detailed assignment directions. These may be typed or handwritten and will be graded by the student’s English 9 teacher and accompanied by a class discussion on the reading. Students who do not have English first semester may turn this assignment into Mrs. Heslink during the first week of school for safe keeping. Antigone DEJ AssignmentEnglish 10 Summer Reading
