ELA Grade 10 Honors Summer Reading (Required)
Summer Reading for year 2015
Greetings! As you know summer reading is a tradition for most high schools across the United States. This year, you too, will have a mandatory summer reading assignment. Summer reading is a way for you to keep your brain "fit'" and it has been stated that the more a person reads, the better they read. Overall, we encourage you to take advantage of the reading options available, and, hopefully, find a little enjoyment while reading.
Step 1: Choose one of the following books:
Step 2: Read your chosen book and complete the provided reading guide and note-taking organizers
This reading guide is a simple way to remember what you read. Each time you have completed time spent reading, simply mark the page you started your reading and the last page of your reading. In the space provided, write a summary of what you read during those pages. The note-taking organizers are for taking notes on important parts of the plot, important characters,conflicts and other essential components of literature. You will be able to use these notes when you take your Summer Reading Assessment during the first week of school. You can find the attachment for this guide at the bottom of this webpage.
*English 10 College students that complete this assignment will receive bonus points in the form of a quiz grade.
Step 3: Summer Reading Assessment: (English 10 Honors only)
When you return to school, you will apply your understanding of the book in an in-class essay assignment. You will be able to use your notes and the book to help write and support your essay. Class activities designed to help with the understanding of each novel will be conducted.
If you have any concerns about summer reading, feel free to contact any of the tenth grade English teachers via email.
