The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel Hawthorne, Nina Baym, Thomas E. Connolly I first read The Scarlet Letter in 7th grade -- loved it. In 8th grade we were once again asked to read it. In 9th grade our teacher mixed it up a bit by exploring the book *for an entire month*. By the time it was required in 10th and 11th grade I had plenty of essays to choose from and could nearly recite the entire book. It is worth mentioning that that all classes were in the same school district. By the time Scarlet Letter appeared in college I hated it. Moral of the review: If you teach literature check with others before compiling a class reading list.
