You have the freedom to choose your own summer reading plan. As a student in this advanced course, the presumption is that you have above average interest and aptitude in language arts, so your plan should reflect those qualities. Choose at least three books to read this summer. Your choices must be approved by your parent or guardian. Submit the list and parent permission form to your current English teacher by June 1.
For E319 & E336 will be using the book below
Description: There is a story that is usually told about extremely successful people, a story that focuses on intelligence and ambition. Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time looking “around” them-at such things as their family, their birthplace, or even their birth date. And in revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential. In The Tipping Point Gladwell changed the way we understand the world. In “Blink” he changed the way we think about thinking. In OUTLIERS he transforms the way we understand success.
