2019-2020 Summer Assignments for Honors/AP students
In the English Honors/Advanced Placement program at VJA, we firmly believe that summer assignments allow students to engage with texts in a meaningful way at their own pace. Students have homework that requires both reading and writing, with the expectation that all written work be submitted their first day of the new school year. Having our classes come prepared in this way enables us to immediately forge our classroom communities through discussions of a common novel. Instead of experiencing a “summer slump,” our students will practice their essential English language skills, paving the way for success for the whole year. Please help us by supporting your students in their completion of this assignment.
