Advanced Composition
Students entering May River High who took English I in eighth grade, will take Advanced Composition in ninth grade. It is the expectation that all students complete the reading and assignments below over the summer prior to the start of the school year regardless of which semester the student has the course. 

All Advanced Composition students will:
1. Read one book from the SC young adult book list and complete the extended reading assignment. (See links below.)
This will count as a quiz grade. 
2. Read The Awakening by Kate Chopin and complete the extended reading assignment linked below.
This will count as a quiz grade. 
3. Complete an additional teacher-determined assessment during the first three weeks of the class, which will count as a test grade. 
***Dates for assessments are estimates and can change per teacher discretion.***
