    Congratulations on deciding to take AP English Literature and Composition! Because of the insane circumstances of this past year, and the uncertainty that lies ahead, this year’s summer reading assignment is very different. Your task is to read a novel. Be prepared to discuss the novel in some detail in September. To help you in this task, you should pause at certain points in your reading and do some responsive writing to record your thoughts at various moments. Some topics for response journals include looking at characters, their motivations and actions. You could also comment on the novel’s setting - look beyond the simple time and place and think about the historical context, the society the novel depicts, and how the setting helps to move the story forward. You can also think about the writer’s use of language - things like how imagery is used or the types of words and sentences the author chooses. These are not formal pieces. Rather, they are responses designed to help you engage in a college level conversation about a piece of literature. Enjoy, and, hopefully, see you in September. Have a safe and restful summer!

    English 101 & AP Summer Reading

    This summer, the English 101 and A.P. Lit. teachers see the value in having you read for the fun of it, with the expectation that we willhave a bookshare when we return to school in September. Your individual teachers may ask you to complete something in addition when we return, but there will betime provided to process that request by your teacher.
    At this time, please choose a book to read. A.P. Literature students should focus on fiction, as your course will focus on fiction literature. English101 students, please choose a non-fiction book, as your class will focus on nonfiction selections. Please consider at least five of the guided reading questionsprovided below that will help you prepare for discussions about your book.
