Incoming AP Literature/IB students should complete the two following assignments detailed below – an Allusions project (Parts A and B) and the reading of the novel, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (Part C). Enjoy your summer and your peripatetic literary travels. Be sure to read pages 1-8 of this document.
Note that AP and IB Literature programs place great importance on originality of thought and individual engagement with learning; reading Spark Notes/Cliff Notes or watching the movie will not cut it. If you are unwilling to put time into reading, then Advanced Placement Literature is not the class for you. In this class we spend a great deal of time reading, discussing, analyzing, and writing about imaginative literature to prepare you for the AP Literature and Composition exam in May 2023.
