Honors American History I Summer Reading List

May 2018

Dear students,

In preparation for the American History I Honors (Pre AP) course for ninth grade, you are required to complete the following summer assignment:  The first chapter of our textbook will be placed online (guidance section of school website) for you to read.  You are to complete a hand written outline of the chapter (not typed) and complete the exercises listed below.  This assignment will allow you to become familiar with the college level textbook we will be using in class.  Due to the demands of this class, you will need to stay up with your readings throughout the school year.  When you return from the summer, we will complete an assessment within the first two weeks of school which relates to this assignment. Enjoy your summer!
