English IV AR Choices for February

My seniors should choose one of the following to read independently by February 24th, 2009. 

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

First They Killed My Father by Loung Ung

Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin

Does My Head Look Big in This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah

Things Fall Apart  by Chinua Achebe

All quizzes for these books will be taken in class on the quiz due date.

Honors AR Options

Here are links to information about the AR books honors students should choose from for their next reading assignment:

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway (10th grade only)

Vanity Fair by William M. Thackeray (12th grade only)

Please note that these links take you to Amazon.com not because I expect you to purchase the books, but rather because it is a good quick resource for reviews (scroll down to find them) and excerpts of the books.

My students in Regular English are of course encouraged to read these books also, however they are not required to do so.
