• A language and visual analysis essay on a persuasive text Pre – Reading Homework for ‘The Kite Runner’

Your job for the holidays is to read “The Kite Runner”. This will be the first text we will study in class. The text will be taught with the assumption you have already read the whole book. This means that only key scenes and chapters will be read and studied together as a class.

You also need to keep a glossary of terms. Take the time to look up words that are unfamiliar to you in a dictionary or on the internet as well as clarifying terms that reoccur in the text.
