Freshmen Honors Summer Assignment
Dear Rising Freshmen Honors Students - I’m really looking forward to meeting you in the fall! I hope you are prepared to work hard (after you’ve had a little break this summer). Here’s what you’ll need to accomplish before we meet face-to-face.
See you soon - Happy Summer!
Freshmen Honors Teacher
Three components - Two books - Fiction and Non-Fiction
Component One: Fiction - Choose ONE of these novels
- Read EITHER House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer OR The Examination by Malcom Bosse. Know that you will be assessed on your reading via a book test and a writing piece. We will be using this piece as a springboard into our 1st quarter, so it’ll really help you out if you do a good job on this.
- I will check for a grade that you have taken Booknotes from your chosen novel above as you read. Please see the Fiction - Booknotes tab.
Component Two - Non-Fiction
by Edith Hamilton
Component Three - Summer Journey Project
No need to have a complete project by school - just pictures and videos ready to stitch together!
