AP COMPUTER SCIENCE  
 

There is no specific Summer Assignment, but it is highly recommended that you sharpen your typing skills. All we do is code, and you have to type all of that manually.  No cool software does that magically for you.  Beyond just knowing how to type letters, make yourself familiar with a few special characters like:

{ } [ ] ( ) - + = | * %

Other than that, get out and enjoy your summer. Don't be the kind of computer scientist that just sits inside and codes all the time...

AP ENGLISH LIT & COMP  

 

“A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say.” --Italo Calvino

Instructors:  Ms. Cardoza-Starnes and Ms. Lazarony

Email: lcardoza-starnes@ggusd.us or llazarony@ggusd.us

Students should obtain their own copies of all novels and plays.  Do remember that libraries have copies of all of the following; however, we encourage all of you to have your own copies for you to annotate, underline, and study each text.  You will be tested on all of these texts, and will need them for a final test in May and to get textual evidence for your final film. 

(We do have copies of Hamlet in your textbook if you wish to annotate with sticky notes.  However, we do recommend a Hamlet that has the modern translation on the other side. This will make you happy!  All can be found in used bookstores.  On Amazon.com, in the “used book” section, you may find these books for as cheap as a dollar plus shipping. There are also students from years past who may have some of these books.  Beg, borrow, but don't steal!)

For the summer:

            • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

            • The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Read the books, NOT ONLINE SOURCES ABOUT THE BOOKS!  

AP Data Sheets for both works--see "files" section, below (e.g., "APLitDataSheet1," "APLitDataSheet2" and so on).  There are five sheets to fill out--for each work.  There are "help" sheets with examples and extra ideas.  NOTE: You must handwrite the answers.  Do NOT use information found on Sparknotes or other online sources.  You will be graded on the originality of your answers!

We will NOT be requiring annotations this year. However, we do suggest that you annotate for your own benefit as you remember the text better when you are actively interacting with it.

***ALSO: Check the "Summer Bridge" flier/announcement below for a special opportunity August 6-7 or August 13-14***
