Wide Reading Assignment
We are pursuing a singular line of inquiry over the next two years, and as part of this it’s vital that we explore as many avenues in literature, philosophy and art that support the development of our understanding of the idea of ambition and the characters of those people who are driven by it.
Attached is the outline of your required personal reading project – inside is the guidance you need to make sure your own-choice reading is going to meet the wide reading criteria.
You can always ask your teacher for advice about which texts would be best to concentrate on – and once you’ve read each text, you’ll then be asked to write a journal entry on your blog explaining how it helped develop your understanding of ambition.
This year everyone in the school will be required to have a ‘book at hand’ – and for GCSE English students, it makes a good idea to make that book one that helps you towards this reading project.
