1 Dear Incoming Freshmen, You are required to do summer reading once you reach the high school. This summer all students will be reading Tears of a Tiger by Sharon Draper. Below are questions relating to the novel. You are to answer the questions as completely as possible. When you enter in the fall, these questions will be due for points towards your first quarter grade. There will not be a test on the book, however, you will be given a writing assignment. The questions that you answer will help you with this writing assignment. If you are taking Honrs English next year, you must ALSO read Lord of the Flies by William Golding. Included is the study guide that must be completed by the first day of school. In Addition to Lord of the Flies, you will need to read a non-fiction book. You should write a 2 page (typed) reflection of the material you read. If you plan to take Honors English next year, and do not complete the summer reading assignments, you will be rescheduled to a college prep class. If you have questions, please contact either Mr. Moritz (college prep) or Ms. Markouc (Honors) by . We look forward to meeting you in the fall! Tears of a Tiger 1. Tears of a Tiger begins with a tragic accident. A fatal car crash is caused by drinking and driving. The story is told from the point of view of the group of friends involved. How does this method of telling the story affect the reader s response? What advantages or disadvantages does this narrative offer? 2. Many teenagers drink and drive without thought of the consequences. How is Andy like many young people today? How is he different? What makes this book more than a moral warning to young readers about alcohol and driving? 3. Describe the relationship between the friends in the book. How does Rob s death affect each of the young people individually and how does it affect their relationships as friends? Is friendship enough when a situation becomes monumental and overwhelming to young people?

2 4. What do you know of Hazelwood High School from the description in the text? How would you describe the building itself, the teachers, the students, the administration, the feel of the school. Why is High School a good location to discuss serious teen issues? 5. Andy s source of physical release as well as a source of serous guilt comes through basketball. He loves the game but feels guilty that he is given Rob s position of the teama position that Andy was never good enough for when Rob was alive. How are sports important in the lives of young people? What positive nd negative results can sports play in the life of a teen? 6. Andy s family had numerous problems. Andy s parents loved him, but seemed preoccupied with their own lives and were helpless to see his pain. Andy could talk to his younger brother Monty, but the six year old was unable to help. How could Andy s family have been more successful? 7. Andy s parents send him to a psychologist to help him talk through his prolems to deal with guilt and trauma caused by Rob s death. How successful are the efforts of the psychologists and how was Andy able to convince the psychologist that he was dealing with his problems? What serious psychological issues are raised through Andy s conversations with Dr. Carrothers? 8. Describe Andy s gradual deterioration. Discuss all the factors that contribute to Andy s suicide. Could Andy s death have been prevented? How? What are the reactions of Andy s friends and how do those reactions clarify that there is always a better solution than death. 9. What are the problems created by discussing the problem of ten suicide and death in a novel for young adults? What dangers and positive influences can result? What is the effect of Monty s final words to Andy in the last chapter?

Do teenagers speak two languages - one for themselves and one for the adults? What is the effect of the use of modified slang in the conversations of the young people in the story? 12. Explain the title of the novel. What references can be found to tears and tigers? What is one possible interpretation of the title? 13. Many people have asked the author why Andy was allowed to die. Why is tragedy more memorable and more powerful than happiness in a novel? 14. Imagine Andy s brother Monty in years to come when he will be the same age as Andy when he died.
