Summer Reading Assignment for AP English Literature Students!

For students enrolled in AP English Literature and Composition for the 2022-2023 school year, please view the Summer Reading Assignment! Here is the Jane Eyre Study Guide
12 A/B
Ms. Ciuperca
Prior to the start of the AP course you are asked to complete a summer reading assignment that will demonstrate high commitment to this class and will provide support in the beginning of the course.
Summer Reading: Read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.
You can:
  • Buy your own copy so you can annotate the text
  • Download the e-book for free at
  • Check out the book from our library (let Mx. Hollis know this is for your AP class and that you will need to keep the book over the summer)
Apply the close reading techniques you have learned in your current English class. If you feel more comfortable keeping notes of your reading, create a dialectical journal or write a brief summary of each chapter. I will NOT check these for credit, they are meant only to keep you focused on the events in the book.

For those who are more inclined to study guides, please check the one posted on the school website under English summer assignment. You will be able to see a chapter-by-chapter list of questions that guide your understanding of the text. Again, the responses to these questions will not be checked for credit.

Additional Reading Titles (optional, not for credit)
Due to time constraints, we will not be able to read longer pieces of literature that are being extensively used on the AP exam, so this might be the perfect time to read these books. Here are some suggested titles that will enrich your reading experience:
First Day of School (August 15, 2022)
On the first day of school, you will be asked to write an in-class essay on the novel. You will not be allowed to use any resource during the test; therefore, review a week before school begins.
Feel free to contact me during the summer via e-mail at [email protected] with any questions or concerns.

I look forward to working with you and sharing with you the wonderful experience of AP Lit.
