To address drops in reading proficiency, students in Mrs. Hixson’s and Mr. Brittain’s classes will study the classic texts “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “Romeo and Juliet,” and “The Outsiders.” The books will allow students to practice active reading and Common Core anchors. While reading independently, students will be able to highlight meaningful information, question the texts, make personal connections, and define unfamiliar vocabulary.
