Ms. Rayma Davis « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar
I know the 2014-15 school year has just ended, but the new year will soon be upon us. Please check the Teacher Connection page frequently for updates and information. Also feel free to contact me at any time. I have included the summer reading assignment for the dual enrollment students; it is somewhat different than that for other students. The books have not been changed. I am also including my supply list. I am looking forward to a great school year.
SUMMER READING FOR DUAL ENROLLLMENT STUDENTS, GRADES 11 AND 12
The first year students will get the same packet everyone else does, but they actually do not need to do the community service nor the presentation.
Instead they will do an active reading response log on the book they choose to read.
Active reading responses should include the following:
1. Reactions to the text.
2. Questions about the text.
3. Definitions of words unfamiliar to the reader.
4. Elements of fiction, things like examples of figurative language, narrative elements, symbolism, allusions, flashbacks, and so on.
5. Direct quotes the reader finds interesting or important to the theme of the book.
6. Things the text makes the reader remember or think about.
Reading response log entries should be dated because each time the reader reads, an active reading response should be made. If a student buys his own book, he should highlight and underline in the text, if not sticky notes can be used to mark important places in the text. NOTE: the highlighting and sticky notes do not take the place of the log.
When students return to school, the logs will be collected, and there will be a literary analysis paper assigned. Explanation for the paper will be given the first day of class.
Students who have questions can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I do not answer school emails during the summer. If you would like to speak to me directly, email me, and I will send you a phone number to call.
The book choices are as follows:
The Call of the Wild by Jack London
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
My Lobotomy by Howard Dully
Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand
The Villages Charter High School
