Santa Clara High School requires all students to read throughout the year. Students check out books in person or electronically from the SCHS library. Ask the librarians for recommendations. They love to talk about books! Ms. Brown requires her students to complete Book Chats throughout the year. Students can print the form or pick it up in class. The next book chat is due before October 14. Why wait? Turn one in now.

Welcome to Ms. Brown's class. I'm excited to announce that this year we will have daily access to Chromebooks in English 9! In addition to the supplies provided by me, you will need to bring the following daily:
- blue or black pens
- red pens (for correcting only)
- pencils (for scantrons)
- binder paper
- SET of highlighters with SIX colors: yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and green
- small post-its (for annotating text)
Target's current sale includes all of these items. Please make sure the set of highlighters contains ALL six colors. Students will use specific colors to identify specific aspects of writing. I will have a few sets to share, but in previous years, students comment that they regretted not picking up their own supplies (that included orange and purple) while they were on sale at the beginning of the year. My 2013-2014 student survey suggested that I encourage students to invest in these materials during the first week of school.They recommend students buy the double pack and share (or save the second set for the second semester).
