6th Form Summer Assignment
You are here
Welcome to your senior year. All South Kent students must complete a summer assignment.
FIRST, read So Much Unfairness of Things by CDB Bryan.
- I will e-mail a pdf of this story to all enrolled students.
SECOND, read the short story “The Palace Thief” by Ethan Canin, which can be found in his collection of short stories, likewise called The Palace Thief. Please note: you do not need to read the entire book; you only need to read the fourth and final short story in the book.
- The book containing this story is available through Kindle (Click HERE or go to the link below): (http://www.amazon.com/The-Palace-Thief-Stories-ebook/dp/B004EWFV9A/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1372094165&sr=1-1&keywords=palace+thief)
- It is also available in print (ISBN 978-0312119300).
FINALLY, write a 2-3 page paper in which you compare the character PS Wilkinson (from “So Much Unfairness of Things”) to Sedgewick Bell, Jr. (from “The Palace Thief”). This paper is due at the start of classes.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this summer assignment.
