Congratulations! You have enrolled yourself in the first of many high school advanced placement Language Arts courses. Honors and AP courses are demanding, so be sure to keep up with the work involved. We use curriculum designed to prepare you for college, therefore, the pace and level of thought expected are set accordingly.

In order to keep your brain sharp, you will have summer homework. It is your responsibility to manage your time wisely. After reading Animal Farm, by George Orwell, choose one of the assignments below and have it completed by the first day of school.

 

  Choose Your Assignment #1:  Read Animal Farm, by George Orwell

  1. Complete the four page Literary Analysis Sheet,

    • The best piece of advice that we can give you about the summer homework is this: fill-out the Literary Analysis Sheet while you read the text. If you wait until after you have read the text, it will be extremely difficult.

    • These are your thoughts alone, do not use ‘Memorable Quotes’ from the many internet sites available, and do not turn-in work that closely resembles another student's’ work, doing so will earn you a non-passing score.

  2. Be prepared for an extensive exam on the novel,

  3. Create two leading questions for a Socratic Seminar on the first day of class.


 Choose Your Assignment #2: Read Animal Farm, by George Orwell

  1. Choose one of the three essay prompts (attached) and write a well-organized essay answering the prompt. Please familiarize yourself with the attached “How to Write a Winning Essay” and the rubric,

  2. Be prepared for an extensive exam on the novel,

  3. Create two leading questions for a Socratic Seminar on the first day of class.

I am available throughout the summer through email, jedge@scappoose.k12.or.us

 

I am looking forward to meeting you in the fall!
