In an effort to foster success and cut down on the amount of homework you will have in the first few days of school, we have put together a suggested summer assignment for AP Seminar. There are two parts to the AP Seminar Summer Reading assignment; be sure to read the directions for each part carefully and complete each question for Part A and all of Part B.

Responses may be handwritten or typed. Each response for the questions in Part A should be started on a new page. The essay for Part B should also be on a separate page. The top left side of each page should state the part and question number of that page’s response. Your name should appear at the top right of each page.
