Once you have chosen your book take a look through the following project options. Your assignment is to complete a combination of the following projects that will total 100 points. The point values are listed. If you choose to, you can even do the same type of project more than once, to bring your total point value to 100. Or have some fun – try out different projects/ways of expressing what you’ve learned!
Remember: this project represents your FIRST grade in English in the 2014-2015 school year. Make it count! You will be expected to share your project with your ELA class, so take pride in what you do! And as always, plagiarism will NOT be tolerated – be original, be creative, be you.

ALL STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO BRING THEIR COMPLETED PROJECTS TO SCHOOL ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2014. They will be graded by your English Language Arts teacher. Please note: 100 points is the STARTING grade, but not a guarantee – lack of effort or failure to follow directions can bring it down from there!
Students in AP Language or Literature classes are not required to complete this school-wide summer reading assignment as they have a DIFFERENT assignment, which was handed out in June.
If you have any Summer Reading questions, please email Ms. Wheeler: cwheeler@StamfordCT.gov or Ms Tobin: ktobin@StamfordCT.gov.
AP Human Geography does not have a required summer assignment.
