For those entering English IB HL 1—read both:
Literature textbook pages 359-389, "The Human Spirit and the Natural World."
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
Your first IB assessment centers on these works, so take extensive notes on plot, themes, characters, point of view, etc.
You will need to check out the junior level Literature book from the textbook room to complete the Transcendental readings and Critical Reading Questions
before you read Into the Wild.
Directions for an assignment and an example have been placed on the Walnut High School website. This assignment must be completed for Into the Wild.
