The Great Gatsby assignment: You will need to read the novel and complete the study questions; have those ready to turn in at the end of the first week of class. These questions will help you follow the plot of the story and study for a plot-based test on the novel. This test will be given after the first week of school. In addition, you will be assigned a character analysis essay, so you will need to make notes of key descriptions and quotes related to one of the main characters as you read the novel this summer. I suggest that you do this assignment in August so that the material will be fresh in your mind as we will begin the year will a discussion of this novel.
Although I hadn’t yet become comfortable writing about my past during the first few quarters of school, I enjoyed writing for academic growth. I enjoyed analyzing and debating the issues, reflecting on books we had read, or just journaling my thoughts about the day. It wasn’t until my second year at Evergreen that I was able to revisit some of my past experiences and childhood memories by writing a required memoir for one of my classes. This process was very difficult, and I found myself re-writing over and over again. The experience, although very painful has sparked a desire in me to tell my life

I chose the book Bomb: The race to build and steal: The most dangerous weapon. In choosing a book for summer reading, I read all the summaries of the selection given to my freshman English class.

Start something that matters book review Every year Missouri State University selects a ‘common reader’ for the incoming freshman that relates to the schools Public Affairs Mission that year and this year they selected Blake Mycoskie’s “Start Something That Matters”. This book illustrates the struggles and hardships of creating a business as well as the story behind the best selling shoe; TOMS. When I first heard that we were reading Blake’s book I was a bit skeptical as to why it is important for me to read and how this would fit in with MSU’s Public Affairs Mission but I soon realized that this book not only was important for me to read but it also was a perfect fit with MSU’s Mission. This year’s Public Affairs Mission “Global Perspective: Why It Matters” and Blake really puts it into perspective. He introduces us to the poor Argentinian children who run around all day barefoot and this type of shoe called the alpargata which inspired the creation of TOMS.

Throughout the semester, I grouped up with people of my class and analyzed another student's essay. This was useful as I my essays got evaluated as well, giving me ideas on how to improve my essay.

Though as children age their imaginary friends become things of their past, many young adults continue to find supportive and mentoring characters in novels, on television programs, and on professional sport teams; the possibilities are endless. Holden Caulfield is his name, and he is the main character in J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. My 9th grade English teacher assigned this novel on the summer reading list for incoming freshmen. I had already heard rumors that this was a great work of literature, but I would have never imagined the impact that this book would have on me.
May 2011 Dear Parents and Students: Your MYP 9th grade Humanities teacher is requiring incoming freshmen to read either Little Brother by Cory Doctorow or 1984 by George Orwell for summer reading, so the students can better prepare themselves for their freshman year.

The required selections are somewhat difficult and deal with mature themes.
