    Just wondering what novels are being taught in ELA - Might be able to share some lesson ideas! Also, we are trying to add to our ninth grade reading list in my district, so I am curious what people teach there.

    for me:
    9th - Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, Heroes by Robert Cormier, The Odyssey by Homer

    10th - Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck, Night by Elie Wiesel, Anthem by Ayn Rand, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

    11th (Honors) - The Crucible, Scarlet Letter, Ruth Hall by Fanny Fern, Great Gatsby, Huck Finn

    Hmm, I don't know much outside my grade:
    9th - To Kill a Mockingbird, Romeo & Juliet (mostly short stories)
    10th - (again more short stories) Fahrenheit 451 (or outside reading an individual sci-fi novel, teacher's choice), and Night and/or Farewell to Manzanar
    In 10th honors the novels/plays are Scarlet Letter (Crucible last year), The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail (a play, less known but great for teaching Emerson & Thoreau!), Huck Finn, Old Man & the Sea, Fahrenheit 451.
    11th is American Lit focus and 12th is Brit Lit focus here, but I don't know what novels, sorry!
