If you signed up for or plan to take AP Language for the 2017-2018 school year, please do the following during the summer break: 

 

Summer Assignment 2017 Advanced Placement Language and Composition

This course is about understanding rhetoric, the art of persuasion.  To this end, Ms. Cargill, Mr. Head, and Mrs. Madrigal ask that you start tuning in to the many obvious and subtle ways you are "encouraged" to act, think, or believe a particular way--for instance, why is "encouraged" in quotation marks?  

 

For AP Lang, get used to the idea that "text" can mean something written, a person's body language, or even a picture.  Advertisements, music, editorial cartoons, comic strips, political speeches, photographs, newspaper articles, vlogs, blogs, dogs (maybe?)--what can people use to send messages to you about themselves or about how they think you should be?  For example, will you belong to a certain group by listening to this music?  Does that soda company want you to associate drinking its products with having fun?  Will wearing these jeans make you fit in with the cool kids?  Does agreeing with this individual make you smart?  Does following this group make you safer?  

 

This summer, take a critical view of your world.  Ask yourself the following questions about various texts, and submit them through Google Forms at https://goo.gl/forms/3MCammfdoxKLjNbu2:

 

1. What is the nature of the text (e.g. printed words, a photograph, a commercial)?

2. What is the message of the text?

3. Is the text appealing to your:

A) emotions, like fear, joy, a desire to belong, a need to feel special, etc.?  

B) intelligence?

C) faith?

D) bias?

4. Why does the speaker expect you to believe him/her/it?  Does the speaker have some kind of authority

or superior knowledge? good character? the ability to intimidate?  experience?

 

You should post and explain at least ten examples by 11:59 PM Sunday, August 13.    

 

You may view your submissions and your peers’ on Google Sheets at https://goo.gl/0ZMwkz.

AP Literature 2017-2018

Summer Assignment

 

Welcome to AP Literature and Composition!

Your summer assignment is easy.  Please select a book to read over the summer.  That's it!  Read anything you want.

 

During the first few weeks of school, you will use this piece of literature to help define literary merit.

 

Please be sure that you can discuss your choice novel in detail.  You should be able to explain character development, plot structure, themes, symbols, and motifs upon your return.

 

You are not required to annotate, but most students find it helpful.

 

If you're stuck and don't know what to choose, e-mail Ms. Newray! (newrayk@esuhsd.org)
