Reflection about Arapahoe High School

Yes, you are finally a high schooler! I want you to reflect upon your classes, school expectations, school excellence, teachers, old friends, new friends, the dance, activities, and/or athletics. What has been unexpected, what is the same, what was refreshing, etc.? Talk candidly, but as always use proper grammar, punctuation, and word choices. Be thoughtful and courteous. Thanks!

English 9 Summer Reading

Over the summer, Arapahoe High School asked you to read at least two novels of your choice.

1) Briefly tell me what you read, including the titles and authors.
2) I want to know what you liked about the books, what you learned and, more importantly, what matters to you about the book's content. Use specifics about characters, setting, conflicts, action details, etc. to make your response meaningful. If you have the book still, use quotes to showcase the writer's craft.

*Make sure to adhere to proper conventions and proofread your response. If, for some reason, you did not read two novels, tell me about two novels you have read and answer the above.
