English Honors/AP Summer Reading Selections
West Davidson High School
In preparation for next school year, students signed up to take an Honors or Advanced Placement English class are required to read a work specifically selected for their course. The summer reading assignments, by grade level, are as follows:
Remember that reading this book is only one component of the summer reading. On the second day of classes, August 28, 2012, ALL students will be given a prompt to which they must respond in essay form. Students enrolled in fall semester English courses will be given a prompt in class; however, students enrolled in spring semester English courses will be given a prompt after school on August 28, 2012. Students who do not submit an essay will receive a zero for this assignment, which counts as a test grade.
A thorough understanding of the novel is necessary in order to score well on this essay; therefore, remember that while reading your assigned book (if you purchased it), that this is your copy. We highly recommend annotating the text (i.e. write notes, observations, etc. in the margins; dog-ear important pages; etc.). If you do not purchase the text, consider using Post-It/Sticky notes to make comments throughout the work while you read. Ultimately, you are to have a thorough understanding of your assigned work including: theme, story elements, genre, background/historical context, etc.
Pandora's Books in Lexington will be stocking these books so that parents/guardians can purchase these locally.
English III AP students met with Mrs. Wood to discuss their summer reading and additional resource requirement. Any questions or concerns regarding this should be directed toward Mrs. Wood.
