  • AP and Honors Summer Reading 2018

    Please be sure that you finish the following summer reading assignments by the first day of school, Monday, August 20. All students taking Honors World History, AP English Literature, AP Government, or AP Econ must complete following reading and note-taking assignments:


    AP English Literature: The Great Gatsby & Their Eyes Were Watching God

    AP Microeconomics: Textbook: Principles of Economics and the Econ Reader

    Honors World History: Guns, Germs, and Steel and Chapters 1 and 2 of Panorama


    The note-taking assignment is due on August 20 and you will be tested on your understanding of the texts later in the week. You will receive credit in English class as well as Government and Econ 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 Economics:

    • Read and take notes on the first chapter of the textbook using the Cornell Notes style.

      • Summarize the 10 Principles of Economics

    • Read the articles in the reader

      • Write a short (2-3 sentence) summary of each article.

      • For each article, describe the problem or situation being studied with the following questions in mind.

        • What is the problem?

        • Why, according to the economists, are the subjects acting the way they do?

        • How can this behavior be changed?

        • What real-life implications does this study have?

        • Which of the 10 Principles of Economics is reflected in the article?


    Due Date: Monday, August 20, 2018


    Tips for Summer Reading

    • Please don’t wait until the last minute, but the books should be fresh in your mind at the beginning of the school year. We recommend beginning reading around July 23. This will give you four weeks 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 assignments 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 or Mr. Godoy
