Gr. 9-12 Summer Reading 2009-2010

by Sue Costagliola East Meadow School District

The Summer Reading program at W.T. Clarke High School, grades 9-12, asks students to choose works of literature from the included list, read and hopefully enjoy these titles, and then engage in a series of diversified assessment activities for extra credit in September. Students will be asked to write regents-like critical lens essays, engage in critical discussion in literary circles, create and perform skits, engage power point presentations, pursue and apply appropriate research to the ideas at hand, and write a variety of analytical essays. All of the assessments include reference to the four New York State Standards: • Standard 1 “Students will read, write, listen, and speak for information and understanding” • Standard 2 “Students will read, write, listen, and speak for literary response and expression” • Standard 3 “Students will read, write, listen, and speak for critical analysis and evaluation” • Standard 4 “Students will read, write, listen, and speak for social interaction” AP and Honors students will be required to read titles for summer reading. All R and RS students will read titles on a voluntary basis for extra credit.
