AICE Literature in English Summer Reading Projects
Students will read TWO pieces of literature and complete the following projects. If they have questions over the assignments, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please read Dracula by Bram Stoker and take notes over each chapter. Once you have taken notes over each chapter, look specifically at the two main characters: Jonathan Harker and Dracula. You will write a character analysis for both. Your character analyses should consist of physical description, actions, inner thoughts, reactions, speech and the growth/development of the character. You will also include your interpretation of what each character looks like. You may showcase this through a drawing (either by hand or using technology- drawing app, Photoshop, etc.), through a collage, or any other creative way that you choose.
- Please read The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and take notes over each chapter. Once you have taken notes over each chapter, please choose 1 out of the 6 topics to write about in regards to the story. Your response must be 1 full page long in MLA format (double spaced, Times New Roman font, size 12), written in complete sentences, while using proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
The Handmaid’s Tale topics:
- Gender Roles
- Religion and Theocracy
