Woodrow Summer Reading, 2012: 9th Grade

The following books are the assigned summer reading for incoming 9th graders at Woodrow Wilson:

Your assignment will be to complete a summer reading response journal and be prepared to give an oral presentation (specific assignment will be given to you on the first day of school).

Summer Reading Response Journal Directions:
This journal is due on the first FRIDAY of class. It will seriously affect your grade if you do not put much thought into it, if you do not complete it, or if you fail to turn it in.

Interesting/Valuable Quotes and Reading Response Journal
  • Find at least 5 (five) significant quotes (no more than one in any chapter).
  • Quotes can be phrases, clauses, sentences, or passages that you feel represent some universal or important statement that the novel makes. Include page numbers for all quotes and explain WHY you find the quotes interesting or valuable (give extended commentary analysis of at least 1 developed paragraph in length for each quote, as opposed to a few hastily written sentences).


  1. Wow I'm just now seeing these assignments. Good thing I 've already been reading The Alchemist over the summer. Next stop- Barnes and Nobles!

    1. Good luck! Still plenty of time to get this done.

  2. Holy cow! Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! (Sorry. Was out of town and didn't check the blog until today.) You really, really, REALLY need to read these books. All three. Now. No kidding.

    Fret not!

    Stay calm and do your reading. It's okay. You have time, still, but you should take advantage of the last day of tax free weekend and buy those books now.

    Why are you still reading this? You need to be reading the books. Good luck!
