English 11 Summer Reading 2014  

I hope you are all having a great summer and have had a chance to relax some. However, a true scholar's work is never really done--make sure you are doing your summer reading. 

A few reminders: 

Read Arthur Miller's The Crucible by the first day of school. Make sure you are VERy familiar with the characters and story. I suggest you create a list of quotes that help sum up the essence of each major  character. 

Read Thank You for Arguing by Jay Heinrichs. Note that you MUST have the Revised and Updated edition. You must have this book read by the first day of class. We will be working with the book extensively this year.

On the first day of class you should have They Say, I Say by Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein. Honestly, the older edition is better. Save yourself some serious money and buy the first or second edition used at McKay or on Amazon.

There will be other books as the semester progresses, but this is it for now . . .
