Welcome to Honors 9th Literature

I am excited to have you in Honors 9th Literature this semester!

Please find the pre-course reading assignment and get started reading your selected nonfiction book (autobiography, biography, or memoir). Be sure to select a print text (no e-books for this assignment). You should not select a text you have read for another class; specifically avoid Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance since it is required reading for AP Human Geography and Night by Elie Wiesel since many of you read it in middle school. Annotate as needed using the guidelines on the assignment sheet. You will need to bring your annotated book to class Wednesday, January 9; you will complete an in-class writing assignment using your annotated book.

In order to fill out the Prerequisite Vocabulary and Skills Tracking Sheet that is attached to the pre-course reading assignment, you will need 9th-12th Vocabulary and Skills. This should be a review of concepts you have already learned, and it will become the first document in your class notebook. This will also be helpful for your writing assignment Wednesday, January 9. Please do not spend lengthy amounts of time on this. It is meant only for review and reference.
