Summer 2016

 

 

 

Dear Freshman,

 

Welcome to Cardinal Mooney High School.  In keeping with our tradition of excellence, we are continuing our summer reading program.   On the back of this letter is a list of the novels or plays you must read this summer before your ninth grade English class.  It does not matter whether your English class meets during the first or second semester on our block schedule.  It would be wise to compile a list of characters with descriptions and a chapter-by-chapter or act-by-act summary for each novel/drama. Within the first week of class, you will be required to share your notes and demonstrate your understanding of the work or works through activities, tests, or special projects.

 

If your schedule shows that you signed up for English 9, you should read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins by and Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.  If Honors English 9 is listed on your schedule, you should read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, and The Diary of A Young Girl: Anne Frank by Anne Frank.  The entire list of books for your course is also on www.cardinalmooney.com and located under the English Supplemental Reading List.  Read! Read! Read!

 

Attention! Audio books are now available for all CMHS students to assist their reading of all novels and subject  texts. Follow the link, Ally Learning, on the CMHS website: www.cardinalmooney.com .

 

These books are also available at the local public libraries or at local book stores. If you don’t already have a library card, this summer would be an excellent time to get one (I-card-Mahoning County) from the public library in your community.

 

 

Enjoy your summer – and your reading.

In keeping with our tradition of excellence, we are continuing our summer reading program.   Even if your English is scheduled for the second semester, you should read the work or works listed below prior to the opening of school.  All of these works are available at the public library or at local bookstores.  Within the first week of either semester, you will be required to demonstrate your understanding of the work or works through activities, tests, or special projects.  It would be wise to compile a notebook of pertinent information including a brief plot summary, a description of the chapters or scenes, a list and descriptions of the characters, and a list of possible themes.  This required reading list will also be posted on our website www.cardinalmooney.com under Summer Reading.  If you don’t already have a library card, this summer would be an excellent time to get one (I-card-Mahoning County) from the public library in your community.
