You have two novels, one short play and poetry to read. Once you have read them all, you will memorize three poems from Robert Frost.
You will have a quiz each week during the first three weeks of school. You will write the poems down correctly – spelling, punctuation, page set-up…..
With the prose material, you will pick two assignments of the three remaining and complete them. These are due the second day of class.
The first week of school you will work on a new (and different) assignment for the literary work you did not pick during the summer.
