To encourage continued learning during the summer months and to prepare students to begin the fall English program, the English department has a required summer reading program for grades 8-12. Here are the reading requirements and study questions for your grade level.
These study questions are to be completed while reading the novel and are to be turned in to the English teacher the first day of school. A test over the summer novel will be given during the first week of school. Each student should have a personal copy (electronic or hardcopy are acceptable) of the novel for use in the classroom the first two weeks of school.
Please do not attempt to use a movie version of the novel in conjunction with or in place of reading the book. Movie versions are often different from the original and may confuse you. If you have already read the required selection, please obtain a copy to review and to use in class. The use of CliffsNotes, SparkNotes, or other study materials is not discouraged, but this study help may not be used for the test or for class discussion.
All summer reading is to be turned in on turnitin.com by the end of the first day of school. The login information can be found on each individual assignment.
Enjoy your summer reading adventure!
All students entering 8th through 12th grades have required Summer Reading and related assignments which are due on the first day of school without exceptions.
