AP English Language & Composition Summer 2020 Assignment

Hi, guys!

Welcome to Advanced Placement English Language & Composition!

Your summer assignment will be to read “The Awakening” by Kate Chopin.

https://www.gutenberg.org/files/160/160-h/160-h.htm

This is a link to an online version of it, so you won’t have to check out a physical copy.

When we return to school, you will be given a 4 or 5 sections from the novel, and I will want you to answer specific prompts regarding the events of the story, character struggles, and you may be asked to explain how that quote is significant to the overall themes in the story.

Since we aren’t scheduled to return to classes until the week of the 24th, I would recommend you start reading this story around the first week of August – this will ensure that the novel is still fresh in your memory to answer the questions.

It is not a long novel, and the chapters are fairly short in themselves; if you have any  questions about what is happening as you are reading, please feel free to email me at wwhittaker@valley.k12.ar.us

I am excited to start this new year with you, and I hope that for you it is the best year yet!

Best Wishes,

WW
