12th Grade ERWC Summer Reading

ERWC – 2018 Summer Reading


Incoming Seniors have the choice of the following novels:


The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks – Rebecca Skloot

The short and tragic life of Robert Peace: a brilliant young man who left Newark for the Ivy League – Jeff Hobbs

The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood

Ready Player One – Ernest Cline


There are two Dystopian novels and two Non-fiction novels. Each novel is available in multiple formats: paperback, on-line, PDF, local libraries, and other on-line formats.


All four novels will prepare you for the course work ahead.  


When you have completed the reading, you have the choice of the following projects:


  1. Thematic Collage

Create an 81/2 x 11 collage that depicts the thematic ideas presented in the novel.  You may download images or cut out images from magazines. Then, once you have the images, create a theme line that captures the essence of the novel.  Place the theme line in the center of your collage. On the back of your collage, write a paragraph relating the theme to you personally.

  1. Four-Panel Poster

Create a four -panel poster on your novel that contains the following elements:

  • Symbol

  • Metaphor

  • Theme

  • Quote of the Novel

Each panel should contain a key visual that encapsulates the meaning of the element, and a quote from the novel (cited correctly in MLA format). Visuals can be hand drawn, digitally reproduced, or obtained from another source.  You will need to submit a Quotation Journal, attached to your posted, with three (3) quotes for each of the four elements.


Reading and Project must be completed and turned in on August 24th, 2018 in order to receive full credit.
