Prior to the first day in IB English, please read Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. You may be familiar with the series, but the book is different, and it will be fun working through the text. It’s a great way to start the course–a lot of cool literary effects for close reading practice and big ideas to discuss in class.
There will be a one-page written test for comprehension (minor grade) when we get get back to school, then it’s on to the text of Little Fires–since you will have read it over the summer, you’ll just be reviewing the assigned readings as we work through the text in class.
Should be fun!
