Santa Clara High School requires all students to read throughout the year. Yes, this includes summer. Students can find their assignment listed on the library's web page. In addition to completing this book, Ms. Brown requires her students to complete a Book Chat on their summer reading book. Students can print the form or pick it up during the first few day of school.

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).
