  • AP and Honors Summer Reading

    Please be sure that you finish the following summer reading assignments by the first day of school, Monday, August 19. All juniors and seniors taking AP English Literature, AP U.S. History or Honors World History classes must complete following reading and note-taking assignments:

    AP English Language & AP U.S. History:


    Honors World History:

    The note-taking assignment is due on August 19 and you will be tested on your understanding of the texts later in the week. You will receive credit in English classes as well as U.S. History for these summer assignments once school begins.

    Note-Taking Assignment

    In order to give you credit for taking notes and reading actively and to ensure that you read carefully, you will be given points in history and English classes for taking notes.

    For English: Use post-its to annotate (mark passages and write notes/thoughts on specific lines of your books--be reflective and analytical, don’t summarize). Be sure that your notes are thorough enough. You should mark something with a post-it at least every ten pages and have several more in-depth reflections. Express your opinion and analyze more than you summarize.

    For History: Read the two textbook chapters and take notes using the Cornell Notes format on a separate sheet of paper or a computer. At the end of each section there will be a reflection question. Most of your grade will be tied to your reflections and review. Use the vocabulary and essential questions sheet to help with this. We will have a quiz the first week of school and you will be able to use your notes for the quiz.

    Due Date: Tuesday August 19, 2019

    Tips for Summer Reading

    • Please don’t wait until the last minute, but the book should be fresh in your mind at the beginning of the school year. We recommend beginning reading around July 19. This will give you one month to finish the books.

    • Read carefully and actively; don’t just breeze through the book. You will be responsible for a test and several writing assignments on the texts, so you need to remember details. Use the required note-taking assignment to help you read actively.

    • All together you will be able to earn a great deal of points from the summer reading (a comprehension test, the note-taking assignment, and a few writing assignments once school begins), so read carefully and enjoy the books.

    • If you have any questions or feel like you don’t fully understand the assignment, please call or email Ms. Taylor (920-1678 - staylor@esusd.org) or Mr. Godoy (914-3328 - jgodoy@esusd.org).
