Mr. O’Brien 


 Your summer assignment is to read the book, John Adams by David McCullough. During the first week of school there will be a discussion on the reading and by the end of that week, you will be tested on the book. Therefore, you must take careful notes or make meaningful annotations during your reading. Pay particular attention to how Adams’s life developed, the role his wife played in it and in events in general, and his political ideas. The best approach is to write a brief summary of each chapter as you finish them. This assignment will count as a test grade.
