Big D Reads

Big D Reads 2015 Selection 

True Grit


  South Oak Cliff High School Library participated for the third straight year in the “Big D Reads” with the cooperation and support of  Ms. Goree, home principal, Mr. Joseph, our principal, ninth grade students, faculty, staff and security.

Big Read is sponsored by D Magazine, members of the D Academy, the National Endowment for the Arts, along with educators, supporters and leaders from all over the city of Dallas.  All ninth grade students attended the assembly on April 8, 2015 in the South Oak Cliff High School Auditorium.  Two of our faculty members styled their western attire showing the attire that was worn during the making of “True Grit”, Mr. Ingram and Ms. Linson.  The students saw a video presentation of readers of
“True Grit and received an individual copy of the novel, True Grit”, selected for the Big D Reads of 2015.”

The DISD is thinking of building a curriculum around True Grit for the English classes.
