    By developing this wiki with reading lists, information on texts, study guides, rubrics, book trailers, book reviews, directions and general requirements, students in years 9-12 (and their parents) have a head start on the year's required reading for English classes. Well done to Joyce Valenza for supporting her students in this manner.
