This course is designed to meet the Loyola summer reading requirement for students entering the twelfth grade next fall. This course combines six (6) on-campus class meetings with twice-weekly online meetings. All selections from the required summer reading list will be covered through writing assignments, vocabulary development, oral discussions, and critical analysis. Emphasis will be on reading comprehension using critical thinking and on drawing inferences from the texts. The grade a student earns for this summer reading course will be the grade he earns in lieu of the comprehensive exam given during the first week of the fall semester. Class will meet on-campus every Monday (June 18, 25, July 2, 9, 16). The final exam will be held on campus on Wednesday, July 18. IF YOU MISS ANY ONE OF THESE SIX MEETINGS, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE CREDIT FOR THE CLASS. In addition to these six required on-campus meetings, students will be required to participate in twice-weekly online meetings. IF YOU FAIL TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY OF THESE ONLINE MEETINGS, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE CREDIT FOR THE CLASS. This course is open only to Loyola High School students.
