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