Greetings! As you know summer reading is a tradition for most high schools across the United States. 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.
*SUMMER READING FOR ENGLISH 9 HONORS IS REQUIRED.
*SUMMER READING FOR ENGLISH 9 COLLEGE IS SUGGESTED.
Step 1: READ THE BOOK
The Boy in Striped Pajamas, by John Boyne
Step 2: Complete the Assignment described below.
This assignment requires you to make a visual presentation using GoogleSlides, Powerpoint, or even Prezi. The presentation should include the following details:
