High school students' SAT scores continue to slip

"(MoneyWatch) The latest SAT test figures released today by the College Board suggest that most freshmen aren't academically prepared for college.

High school seniors who graduated earlier this year generated the exact same scores as last year's crop of test takers. The latest results continue a pattern of stagnating test scores that educators have lamented for years.

The 2013 figures suggest that only 43 percent of SAT takers among this year's freshmen are ready for the academic rigors of college studies."

Campbell's Honors English Two Summer Reading Discussion Assignment

20130822-books.jpg

Honors students desiring credit for doing their summer reading assignment should leave at least three substantial comments in the comments area below. Two of the comments should be about the book you read and one should be in response to someone else's comment about a book you did not read. The comments should highlight your understanding of the books (through the other reader in the book you did not read) and inspire confidence in the teachers that you did, indeed, read these books. Unconvincing commentary will receive no credit.
