6th & 7th Grade Summer Reading Assessment Instructions:

You will be reading two novels this summer and complete the assignments that follow. Please note that both of the assignments are due on August 15, 2019 (the first FULL day of school).

1. Read the book Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt.

a. As you read please write a two sentence (minimum) summary on each chapter. These sentences must be in your own words and describe/explain the most important thing that happened in the chapter.

b. You will take a short “quiz” over the book when you get back. You will be permitted to use your typed up summaries during the quiz.

***You MUST write in complete sentences. The use of fragments and run-ons will result in a lower grade. This assignment must be typed (Times New Roman, 12pt. font, black ink).

2. Please choose one of the following books that you have not read before:

· Savvy by Ingrid Law

· Weedflower by Cynthia Kadohata

· The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis

· Fire from the Rock by Sharon Draper

· Cracker, the Best Dog in Vietnam by Cynthia Kadohata

· The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi


**After reading the novel, please create a comic strip that outlines the main events in the story. This can be done on a blank sheet of white paper (you may not use lined paper). You must include an explanation of what is happening in each box (either underneath the box or through word bubbles above the characters’ heads). The comic can be drawn by hand or done on the computer, but it must be neat. The comic must also be colored/in color. You are required to have a minimum of 8 boxes and will be graded on accuracy, creativity, and neatness. Please no poster boards. A standard piece of copy paper is fine.


1.) Reading Requirement: Select one of the books listed, click on this link to see the list.

2.) After reading, write a 2 page double-spaced paper that accomplishes the following:

identifies and analyzes the worldview portrayed in the book

compares/contrasts the worldview portrayed in the book to the biblical worldview

What Is Worldview: A person’s worldview represents his most fundamental beliefs and assumptions about the universe he inhabits.

It reflects how he would answer all the “big questions” of human existence: fundamental questions about who and what we are, where we came from, why we’re here, where we’re headed, the meaning and purpose of life, the nature of the afterlife, and what counts as a good life here and now.

If you still are unsure of what I mean by worldview, explore https://www.ligonier.org/blog/what-worldview/

*You can organize your information however you would like to (you do not have to have an introduction, body paragraphs, and a conclusion), but your paper should include cited textual evidence.

Due: the first FULL day of school!

Due: the first FULL day of school

This assignment is FOR ALL of 11/12 Grade

(AP LANG and AP LIT please complete this assignment and the assignment specific to your class as well, which you will find further down this document).

For ALL of 11th & 12th Grade (AP LANG and AP LIT please complete this assignment and the assignment specific to your class as well, which you will find on this link click here).

Your Books Are:

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton

I’m leaving a set of books, at the LWC front desk for checkout, only one copy at a time. The LWC School Library is closed this summer and there will be no copies available to check out. Amazon and the Public Library are the other options.

Read each novel and answer the chapter questions attached below. Please respond to each question in complete 2-3 sentences. You may type the answers if you please, just be sure to rewrite each question. Upon returning to school, there will be a multiple choice test, including an essay section. I will give you the essays ahead of time so you can prepare as you read. I will select two from the list, so make sure you are able to write a five paragraph essay about each essay topic. The key here is to make sure you pay attention and read the novels, if you read well, you will have plenty to write about each essay, and perform well on the test. If you Sparknote, Shmoop, or LitChart your way through the novels, you will not perform well come test day.


300 total minutes of Membean

Please make sure you complete all 300 minutes. How you break it up is totally up to you. I will subtract points for “dubious minutes” so make sure you are actually completing and using the program correctly.
