Read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Students are encouraged to purchase the books whenever possible so that they can take detailed notes and annotations within the margins of the text. However, we have included remote New York Public Library eBook resources below, including SITHS's eBook Catalog. If using a library book, please use post-its for the purpose of annotations. Teachers will ask that you bring your copy with annotations to school on a designated date in mid-September. Assessments are at the description of the teacher, but no formal assignment is given until students arrive in September.
