                 10th Grade Summer Reading List / Assignments 2010
     Students enrolled in HISP for 10th grade must read a minimum of four books during the summer—
two from the semester lists (one from each list) PLUS Kaffir Boy by Mark Mathabane for your social
science class AND The Sound of Waves by Yukio Mishima for your English class.
        The first week of school you will have assignments in your social science and English classes
pertaining to these books, regardless of which core you are in. You can expect for 5 to 10 percent of your
first semester grade to be based on assignments from these books.
        For The Sound of Waves, you must complete a two-page reader response essay to the novel. In
your response, DO NOT simply summarize the novel. You will not receive credit for summaries. Instead
your reader response essay should be a personal reflection on the potential themes of The Sound of
Waves and how you think these themes relate to the culture of the village illustrated in the novel.
        For Kaffir Boy you will have a test during the first week of school. Prepare for this test by
taking notes on the novel as you read, and bring them with you the first week of school.
     For the two books that you may choose from the lists below, you will keep a quote log to remind
yourself of the book’s content and your responses to them. These logs will consist of ten direct quotations
from throughout each novel, and a thoughtful analysis of each quotation. (For a copy of the quote log
form and a sample of a complete quote log, look on the HISP website at the 10th grade Summer Reading
assignment.) You will need to submit these logs to your teacher along with the bibliographic data for the
books you chose. Be sure your bibliographic data includes: author, title, place of publication,
publisher, copyright date, number of pages.
