Summer Reading for IB English 4

It is very important that, in addition to working on your Written Assignment, that you complete the summer reading before school begins in August.

IB: Students MUST obtain and read How to Read Literature like a Professorby Thomas C. Foster.

The following books must be read and annotated over the summer. This means these books must be purchased in paper or hardback–no electronic books.
There will be an essay on the first day of school based on these novels.

Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The Awakening by Kate Chopin


From Supervised Writing to Written Assignment

This is a sample supervised writing and written assignment. Read both to see how the written assignment grows out of the supervised writing. Pay close attention to the color-coding and numbering of ideas in the supervised writing and how they are further developed in the written assignment. Also, note that there are new ideas and the sequencing of ideas changes.
