Attention all incoming 9th Grade Honors World Studies Students!
We are excited you have registered for this course! In
order to prepare for our year ahead, we ask that you complete a 9th
honors summer reading assignment before returning to school in September.
Why summer reading? Students lose reading
skills during the summer months. Yet, students who read over the summer break
sustain reading comprehension and vocabulary acquisition and enjoy greater
learning gains and test scores during subsequent school years.
What is the learning objective? Students
who wish to enroll in 9th honors World Studies will independently read and then
write and speak about Yann Martel’s Life of Pi (Harcourt; ISBN-13:
9780156027328), so that teachers can assess their reading comprehension,
literary analysis proficiency, thesis writing ability, public speaking skills,
work ethic, and level of academic confidence.
More details can be found in the 9th Honors Summer Reading Information for Fall 2019
