English 9 - Integrated English Independent Reading Project - August 2019

Finding a fiction book was a breeze for this project, but for students looking for nonfiction books that was a little more difficult because not all nonfiction books meet the requirements for the project. As you strolled through the nonfiction section, you had to bypass instructional books, reference books, historical reference books, textbooks, manuals, cookbooks, etc. These are examples of nonfiction books that do not meet the criteria for this project. For students who prefer nonfiction to fiction, here is a list of the best and newest in nonfiction. I will continually update this list in an effort to match our students with the perfect book! This list consists of diaries, biographies, memoirs, true stories, narratives, etc. History buffs, scroll down to the 940s! LIST OF NONFICTION

English 9 - Integrated English Honors (Leslie and O'Neill) Reading Project - Spring 2019

This is not a definitive list of books for your project. These are suggestions. There are millions more out there! Feel free to search for that perfect book on your own or with Mrs. Kozma's assistance. Get excited! Share books you are excited about with others. One of the great things about reading is sharing your interests with others. In fact, a Chinese proverb says "When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others." If you've read something that touched you or benefited you in some way, please share it with your peers. Studies show that students are more motivated to read books suggested by other students. Use your power to encourage reading among your peers. I'm excited for you to select your novel. Please contact me, Mrs. Kozma, with any questions or needs. #READ. Reading has countless benefits that last a lifetime! Once you complete the book, you will be writing a Follett Book Review which will be posted on our library’s electronic card catalogue. Expectations to follow.
