Advanced Placement Language and Composition

Summer Reading 2016

 

All juniors enrolled in AP Language and Composition for the 2016-2017 school year are strongly encouraged to complete the reading assignment described below in preparation for the fall.


 

Suggestion:   Students should annotate their texts and/or take up to two pages of notes while reading.  Pay attention to characters and character development, plot, vocabulary, and theme.  These notes must be handwritten.

 

All readings can be found at a local library; however, it is strongly recommended that you buy the novel and memoir (if you can) and annotate them as you read. It is NOT required you buy the books, but highly encouraged. You can find copies of the books for cheap prices on Amazon.
 

NOVELS

Please read the following three novels.  Annotate the novel and be prepared to discuss in class.  Within the first 6 weeks of school, We will start discussing Moby Dick first, then Sophie’s World, and finally East of Eden. I highly suggest that you are familiar with Moby Dick by week 3, Sophie’s World by week 4, and East of Eden by week 5.

 

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Sophie’s World by Josten Gaardner

East of Eden by John Steinbeck

 

Possible Prompts:

There will be an summative essay involving all three books at the end of the first six weeks.
 

See you in the fall.

English 2A 2016-17

Summer Assignment

Welcome to English 2A!

The summer assignment is to read two books. One is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and the other is your choice from the following:

Feed 

by M.T. Anderson 

 

The Book Thief 

by Marcus Zusak 

 

Little Brother

by Cory Doctorow

 

The Last Book in the Universe

by Rodman Philbrick

 

You are to come to class prepared to discuss and write about these novels in the second week of school.

 

As you read the books, think about the theme of the story.  Theme refers to the central idea or underlying message of the text. In a piece of literature it is a message about people, life, and the world we live in that the author wants the reader to understand.

 

However, theme is rarely stated in the text – instead, the reader must usually consider the plot, characters, and setting to infer the theme.  Read the books closely paying attention to any passages that reveal themes, characters, and/or plots.

 

Fahrenheit 451 is readily available at libraries

and online at:

Please contact me if you have any questions. I will check my email weekly during the summer.
