Another example: For 9th grade, Steinbeck's “ Of Mice & Men”

required. One of the characters, Lennie, likes rabbits, but he ends up accidentally killing them. If your child is sensitive or fearful of reading about animals being killed, or that topic might traumatize him, then let's find another Steinbeck novel, so that the child can still learn about Steinbeck, his writing style, his symbolism, motifs, and so forth. But the child is not just going to sit there and do nothing while the rest of the class reads "Of Mice and Men." He will be required to do an alternate assignment. -- B4E
