Summer Reading

Incoming 9th graders:

You will check out a copy of the mystery novel And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie during Freshman Orientation (August 20-24, 2018). 

Reading Log: Keep a log by chapter numbers (1-16 plus the Epilogue). Log three to four important facts from each chapter. 

Essay: Choose essay prompt #1 or #2 from the packet. Prompt #2 more easily aligns with this book, but the choice is still yours. Write and turn in one essay.

Due: October 5  --  This will count as an English test grade for Marking Period 1.
