S9GS Summer Reading Requirements

**Updated for Fall 2023- Spring 2024

Students should be finished reading their books by the first day of school!

Big picture

Dear Honors (CP) English 9 Students:

All Honors English students entering S9GS should read To Kill a Mockingbird prior to the first day of school. We highly recommend that you annotate as you read for literary elements, plot development, and theme. Bring your annotations to class at the beginning of the semester.

Thanks! S9GS English Department

Project, Quiz, Essay, & Test

Students may be asked to complete a project, quiz, essay, and/or test on the summer reading material. It is important that students spend some time with novel and not consider watching the movie a replacement for reading.

Online Resources:

To Kill a Mockingbird

You can do a Google search for audiobooks which should give you several options. As of now, these links work for parts one and two of the audiobook. However, a search on YouTube will give you chapter by chapter results which many of our students prefer.
