If you plan to take AP next year, please start early on Thank You for Arguing. It reads like a textbook (but funny!), so it's okay to read some here and there. I recommend reading it throughout the end of May and all of June.
Be careful in choosing your book of choice. Research carefully in case the content is offensive to you (language, etc.). I encourage you to read something beyond what is familiar to you. I recommend reading these books in July/beginning of August. You will want to think about how the ideas from Thank You for Arguing apply to your book of choice.
We will be working with both texts as soon as we return in August.
I love AP English and am looking forward to a great year!
