AP Literature – Summer Reading Assignment

Hello, and welcome to AP Literature and Composition! For this summer’s assignment, you will be reading 2 novels and completing the accompanying project outlined beneath the title listed below. All documents needed to complete these assignments can be found on the ACA website ( under the Current Families tab, or by emailing me (Mrs. Hill) at So, on to the summer assignment!

  • Read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
    • Print out and hand-write answers for all sections of the Pride and Prejudice – Chapter Notes worksheets. Your goal should not be brevity, but detailed answers.
  • Read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
    • Annotate as directed in The Great Gatsby – Annotation Guide. You should try to annotate on every page of your novel.
    • Print out (1 sided printing ONLY) and fill in the worksheet pages for The Great Gatsby – Flip Book. Cut where directed at the bottom of the pages and paste the pages together (at the top) to create a Flip Book for the novel. The longest sheets of cut paper will go on the bottom, and the shortest on the top, so that I can read all of the tabbed pages when looking at your flip book. I recommend printing on card stock, if you can, or at least a heavy paper.

On the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, you will be turning in the completed versions of:

  1. Pride and Prejudice – Chapter Notes
  2. Annotated copy of The Great Gatsby (be sure your name is written clearly on the OUTSIDE COVER)
  3. The Great Gatsby – Flip Book

These grades will count for a 150 point summer reading test grade. In addition, you will be taking a multiple choice test on the two novels, as well as completing an essay in class.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at I look forward to seeing you next school year, and enjoy the summer!
