  • Buy To Kill a Mockingbird. We will begin the novel To Kill a Mockingbird after the winter break. Each Pre-AP/IB student needs to have their own copy to annotate. If you cannot obtain a copy, please let me know.Otherwise, I recommend calling local bookstores ahead to reserve or hold your copy. You also have plenty of time to order it online. You may use an old copy, but keep in mind, you will have to do new annotations. Electronic copies are also acceptable, however, annotations will then need to be done separately by hand.
