    C.P.  English 11 Summer Reading Assignment

    Mrs. Amy Price

    Choice of any of the three options

    A. All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

    This is a book written by a German author after WWI, but it gives a unique perspective of war and its consequences.  Even though it focuses on the German side, it allows readers to see the universality of the situations in which soldiers are exposed.




    B.  The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

    This is a book that chronicles the adventures of a young boy, Huck Finn, as he struggles with choices he makes along his journey while going against everything he has been taught. He often has to go against his upbringing while doing what he knows deep down in his heart is truly right and moral.



    Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

    This is a book about two good friends who are drifters looking for work on a ranch after fleeing the law after an unfortunate event.  The two men are opposites in size and  intellectual ability but care deeply for one another throughout their journey.


    ***For the book that you are reading this summer, you will be turning in a completed Reader’s Response Log that includes the following information for EACH TIME YOU READ the book:


    Reader’s Response Log


    Pages read on this date:

    Characters mentioned in the reading for this date:

    Setting details (if different than previous log entries):

    Plot details / important events or incidents:

    (plot details often relate to conflicts faced by characters)


    ***Fill out the above information each time you read your book; at the end of the book, staple each day’s response together and hand in entire set of Reader’s Response entries.


    ***Your Reader’s Response Log will be collected for a grade during the first week of school. It could be collected as early as the second day of school, so keep up with it throughout the reading of whichever book you chose to read.  If you have any questions, please email me at school:  price_a@elginschools.org

    Please type the entire email address, or I may not get it.
