ALL STUDENTS will be tested on the summer reading during the first week of school. AP LANGUAGE (11th Grade) All AP Language (11th Grade) students must read the following book and article: The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck AND How to Mark a Book by Mortimer Adler [article] AND All AP English Language & Composition (11th Grade) students should then select TWO of the following books to read as well: An American Childhood by Annie Dillard Escape from Camp 14 by Blaine Harden Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton Freakonomics by Steven Leitt & Stephen Dubner Keep a dialectical journal of 25 entries for one of the books (other than The Grapes of Wrath). Use a composition book for your journal. Fold each page in half; on the left side, copy a passage you find meaningful or striking in some way. Record the entries in the order that they occur in the book. Put the page number of the passage at the beginning of the passage. If the words are spoken by a character, tell who is speaking. On the right side of the paper, write a response to the passage. The response must always be in the context of the book. You may write in first person and include your feelings about the passages, but locate and comment on examples of literary/rhetorical devices as well. Each passage should be about 50-100 words. Make sure you copy all the parts to which you are responding. Responses should be substantial. For the other book, create a video giving your opinion of the book, the parts you liked best, things you didnt understand, questions you might ask the author if you could, and any other interesting insights. Be sure to quote some favorite passages and explain their significance. (Be sure to completely identify the book and author!) You may collaborate with up to three more students and have a panel discussion on the book; if you take this option, be sure to discuss. Be creative! We will watch these in class. Students who take AP English Language (11th Grade) are required to take the AP exam in the spring. A payment of approximately $95 for the AP test is required by Friday, September 8, 2017.
