2020 Summer Assignments
Accessing the Assignments: The summer assignments are grouped by grade level, and according to pairings. Please make use of your son’s approved course list for next school year to determine which courses are required for him to complete.
Outline of Assignments: The basis for the design of this year’s summer assignment is to emphasize and assess a student’s content literacy and writing ability. Each grade level is assigned a critical thinking question from each of their core content areas (English, Science, Math and History) that will revolve around short reading piece(s). There is also an assignment for Foreign Language, but only if a student is enrolled in Spanish/Italian.
When you access the assignment, at the top of the document, you will notice the instructions for completion. Please keep in mind that for each assignment, there are questions from each content area listed in pairings: Science/Math or English/History. Foreign Language will be listed in a separate document.
All students are being provided with a form to be used to complete their summer assignments.
They should fill out the following sections:
- Name and Date
- Content Area (English, Math, Science, or History)
- Question to be answered (Copy and pasted from the original assignment)
- Check off whether the assignment was Honors level
Due Date: The submission of these assignments will occur over the first days of class, so your son should have his assignment completed, and ready for submission at that time. An announcement will go out before the start of the school year as a reminder.
