• Welcome to English 9!

    This course is designed to allow students to grow as readers and writers. Students will be completing both reading and writing assignments for this class.
    The following materials are needed for class:
    • 3-ring binder, minimum 1”
    • 2-pocket folder
    • Notebook paper
    • Writing utensils
    • Book for reading
    All English 9 classes complete Sustained Silent Reading (SSR) daily. In order to do this, all students must have a book. We will be making trips to the library every three weeks; however, students with outstanding fines in the library (including those from Laurel Park) will not be able to check out and will therefore need to bring a book from home or a public library. Students will be completing reading responses, conferences, and discussions regarding their SSR books, which will be checked weekly. 

    The following are always welcome in the class in order to keep things running smoothly, but are not required:
    • Tissues
    • Tabbed dividers
    • Colored pencils
    • Germ-X
    • Tape/extra glue
