CP Eng 10

CP English 10:

I. Read ONE of the following books before the first day of the school year: 

A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah


I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai


The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer

As you read, the following should take place: 

1.   Take strong notes on your selected text.  Typed or handwritten. 

2.   Select quotes that are significant to a scene, theme, or character. Remember to identify the page number of each quotation. Example: (Mathabane 6). 

**State in ONE SENTENCE the meaning of each quote and how it relates to the overall meaning of the book. Do NOT use, “This quote means/says...”  

**Do NOT use the internet to find quotes.  ANY line from the text that is moving or significant to you is correct as long as you support it with reasoning.

**Use just 2-4 four pages total for all of the quotations and “meanings.” Typed, printed, and saved to a Google Doc.

III. Be prepared to lead a discussion about your book selection and take a quiz during the first week of school, either alone or in a group. 

IV. Be prepared to compare and contrast your book selection with other literature throughout the school year.

If you have questions about these directions, see Mr. Smith in B19 or Mr. Paul in A25 before school ends. You may email us during the summer, but remember that we do not check school email daily.  We will make every effort to answer your questions in a timely manner.
