Summer Reading List 

Gifted English

Mandatory Summer Reading 2018

 

Join the 10th grade remind by texting “@1819gif” to 81010

Choose two books from the list below and read them over the summer.

·      Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

·      The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

·      Kiterunner by Khaled Hosseini

·      Moby Dick by Herman Melville

·      The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

·      Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

·      The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan

·      Fences by August Wilson

 

After reading, you will compose an Annotated Bibliography entry for each book that you read. If you have been in gifted/accelerated for 9th grade you will add these onto your other Annotated Bibliography entries. If you have never done one of these, there is an explanation and example on my google docs: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1g9o-vyMgWwGZW66yFdYC8vaDa-7Pg3yEOXF4jAYhZYE/edit?usp=sharing

Bonus opportunity: read an additional book off this list and write an additional AB entry. Doing this will put a “replacement” grade in the “bank.” At the end of the first term, I will replace your lowest grade with a 100.

Start the semester off right, get this done! This will be one of your first grades of the semester.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me through remind or email (Melissa.walker@dcsms.org).
