9th grade: If you are a ninth grader who will be enrolled in the NGP, you are to follow the instructions outlined in the Ninth Grade Program summer reading program. 10th grade: Tenth graders are required to read The Starboard Sea and complete the two assignments outlined below. The Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont, St. Martin��s Griffin, 978-1 250023438 As you read the book, you need to pay attention to the following two assignments. 1. Character list and character log: Categorize the characters into groups and explain why you grouped them in the way you did. From your character list, choose the five characters you consider to be the most interesting, compelling, or resonant and complete the character log below for each one. Character logs are a way for you to keep track of important facts and qualities for key characters. For each character, please write a 2-3 sentence ��character summary�� that most accurately sums up the character traits and qualities of that character, as well as the overall role that character plays in the book. Then list five areas in the book that most strongly support the ideas from your character summary. Consult the sample below to understand how to format your log. The information plugged into the template is from a book called Columbine and should give you a good idea of how to do this assignment well. Name: Description w/ Page Number Eric Harris Was a psychopathic mass murderer who, when amongst friends and others, seemed cool, tough, and over-confident. He had multiple dark fantasies and was the leader in the massacre. -Cool, popular, easy going with the girls. Drank frequently and smoked, but was a good student (Chapter 2 pg 6) - Loved going fishing with his dad on early mornings because it got him away from civilization (Chapter 21 pgs 114-115) -Wrote a poem called ��I Am�� where he dreamed about being the last person on earth. (Chpt 25 pg 135) -����DEAD PEOPLE DON��T ARGUE! God DAMNIT I AM PISSED!!���� (Chpt 37 pg 216) -��Had no use for love. Sex, maybe.�� (Chpt 37 pg 216) -Still dreamed of human extinction (Chpt 37 pg 216)

Page 3
- ��Expressed cold, rational calculation�� (Chpt 40 pg 239) 2. 350 word letter: Using the character log information, write a letter to the character with whom you connect most strongly (either in a positive or a negative way). The letter should be about your response to the character��s choices and the reasons why you connect so strongly to character��s experience in the book. (350 words) 11th grade: Eleventh graders are required to read The Liars�� Club and excerpts from Mythology (see instructions below) and to take notes* in preparation for a seminar and for writing an original memoir. You will need to read The Liars�� Club TWICE to do well. The Liars�� Club, by Mary Karr, Penguin, Reprint Edition, 978-0143035749 Mythology, by Edith Hamilton, Mass Market Paperback, 978-0 316223331. As you read The Liars�� Club, take notes* on four things: • A personal connection might be a character, a relationship, a problem or a situation in the story, which reminds you of something from your own experience (lens 1 and 2). • A revealing moment is a point in the book when you learn something significant about a character: something he/she does or says, or something another character says or thinks about him/her (lens 2). • A pattern is a repeated image, word, phrase, situation, or idea (lens 3). • An allusion is a reference to a well-known text, such as a Greek or a Roman myth (lens 3). To choose what excerpts to read from Mythology, refer to your notes in The Liars�� Club about allusions, and research any reference Karr makes to a Greek or Roman myth. Here is a reminder about what the 3 lenses are: Lens One: reader lens – your personal reactions to the text; what the text reminds you of from your own experience; an idea the text inspires in you; what you liked and didn��t like in the text; how the text connects to other books, movies, songs, or local or world events. Lens two: character lens –the main characters and what you know about them, what you think makes them act the way they do, their inner lives and motivations. Lens three: writer lens – what the writer is trying to get you to think about and the ways she uses structure, word choice, patterns in imagery and language to show ideas without telling them. Remember never to assume the narrator and the writer are the same person! *Note-taking Strategies: • marking in your book and taking notes at the ends of chapters and in the margins • using post-its instead of writing in your book • writing on a separate piece of paper with comments, page numbers and quotes included • using a graphic organizer or chart with comments, page numbers and quotes

Your reading notes will be checked and graded and counted as one of your first grades of the year. Honors Writing: Students in this course must read On Writing and The Elements of Style The Elements of Style, by William Strunk, Jr. and E.B. White, Penguin, 978-0-14-311272-3 On Writing, by Stephen King, Scribner, 978-1-4391-5681-0 As you read On Writing and The Elements of Style, pay particular attention to what each text tells you about your own writing. Take notes on details you want to remember, questions you want to clarify, and points you want discuss. 12th grade AP English: Seniors in this course must read The Odyssey and Huckleberry Finn. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain. Modern Library Classics. ISBN 0-375-7537-6 The Odyssey, by Homer. Penguin. ISBN 0-140-44911-6 As you read The Odyssey and Huckleberry Finn, identify a pattern you see in each book and trace that pattern throughout the text. Take notes on the pattern you have noticed by marking each instance in which it occurs in your book and taking notes in the margin. 12th grade Senior English Seminar: 12th grade Senior English Seminar: Seniors in this course are required to read two books. The first is any edition in the This I Believe essay collection series, found on Amazon. The second is one memoir, autobiography or biography, which tells the story of a person��s life. Please bring both books with you to class on the first day of school. As you read the This I Believe essays, be thinking about what you believe and how you might write your own essay. As you read the story of someone else��s life, prepare to describe and explain the person at the heart of the book. Take notes on these reading prompts in your books by marking significant passages, words, or phrases in your books and/or writing notes about the significance in the margin, on post-its, or on a separate piece of paper. You may not choose a book you have read for another course. EXTRA CREDIT Please read as many more books as you can. The English teachers and the NGP teachers have made a list of suggestions consisting of a wide range of books (see list below). You may choose books that are not on the list as well, but you will not receive credit for reading a book which is required reading for a course. Your teachers are interested to see what kinds of books you like to read. Be prepared to have a one-on-one conversation with your teacher about what you liked and disliked about the extra credit book(s) and why you would or would not recommend it/them. If you have any questions, please contact Laura Moore by phone at (978)448-2883 or email at lmoore@lacademy.edu Can��t think of what to read? Here are some of our favorites��
