Summer Reading

  • Please follow this LINK to view each book list.


    Each student will need to complete summer reading before the new year begins for my class.  Rules are as follows:

     
    HONORS ELA
    1) Students enrolled in the Honors section must complete two novels from the Sophomore Honors ELA list (see attachment).
    2) Each student will complete 4 (four) journal entries worth 25 points apiece--two for each novel--that will be hand-written and submitted to Mr. Trescavage on Day #1 of school.  There are no exceptions or excuses.
    3) During the first Monday of the school year, students will be given one 140 point essay assessment on the two novels they chose.  The essay will be written on a broad prompt that will allow the student to analyze each novel and relate their experiences with each novel.  Students may bring in personal notes for the novels and may bring in the novels themselves.  They should not come with a pre-written essay to be transferred to their assessment.  It must be an original piece, written on that date in class.
