Addendum to Summer Reading for Honors and AP Courses, 2019-2020

In addition to BookSmart Day (the link above), students taking the following courses should read the following books over the summer and be prepared to discuss and write about them…

AP English Literature*

  • Oresteia, Aeschylus
  • Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Eugene O’Neill
  • Their Eyes Were Watching God, Zora Neale Hurston

*Along with the reading of these works, a summer assignment is required, due on the first day of school. There is a mandatory meeting in June to clarify expectations for this assignment.

 

Honors World Literature

  • The Life of Pi, Yann Martel

 

Honors English, Grade 11

  • Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain.  Note: Racial slurs are prevalent throughout this satirical novel; however, Twain’s use of them is meant to showcase the hypocrisy of racism. This is one of the seminal works of American literature, and it accurately portrays a specific and pivotal time in history.

 

Honors English, Grade 10

  • Frankenstein, Mary Shelley (1818 edition is preferable to the 1831 edition)

 

Honors English, Grade 9

  • CHOICE: A Separate Peace, John Knowles, OR A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Betty Smith

Check out the video from our “Credit for Life Fair”.

The Fair was organized by Mary Lyon and Lisa Ryer. It was an amazing day for our seniors and they learned a lot.  What a wonderful opportunity for students to gain some skills and understanding about the real world they will be graduating into but it would not have been possible without Mary, her small army of volunteers and the financial support of the TD Bank. Check it out. It is so cool to hear the thoughts coming from the kids themselves.
