 Summer Assignments
We encourage all of our students to read over the summer! Gainesville High School students are encouraged to read texts of their own choosing this summer (novels, nonfiction, memoirs, journalism, blogs/virtual text, and/0r informational text). After you have read, write a letter to your teacher about your reading experience. What did you read? Why did you select these texts? How did you respond to them? Include your thoughts and evaluation of the texts you read. This will count for an extra-credit grade and is due the first day of class. Check out the following links for some great suggestions:
