Summer Assignments for Advanced Reading for 2018-19

Welcome to Advanced Reading! Each week, on Thursday, an assignment over “The Outsiders” will be posted. Most of the time it will be a discussion question or a short assignment. It will be due the following Wednesday.

I completely understand that a lot of people will be out of town throughout the summer, so if you miss an assignment here and there, it’s ok. Just try and catch up. Again, it will mostly be just discussion questions so as long as you are reading the book, you should be fine and the assignment not difficult.

This first week it is an assignment to help you get acquainted  with the time period.

If you haven’t joined my Google Classroom yet, I have sent an email link for you to join and here is the class code: tqbxzp2

If you don’t participate and complete these assignments, you won’t be able to be in advanced reading in the fall.

Hope you have a great summer and I’m looking forward to your thoughts on “The Outsiders”!
