Summer Reading

Below, you will find important information related to English Reading Requirements during the summer.  All students should review the requirements for each English class they intend to enroll in next year, whether it be 1st or 2nd semester.  Take note that each assignment also has an assessment that can be accessed here.

Why do we want students to read during the summer anyway? There are two major reasons:

  • We want to make reading fun for students.  Reading is essential to a well-rounded education.  Reading makes students better writers, better thinkers, and better people.  The more students read, the better life-long learners they will become. We want students to read as much as they can and anything they can!

  • Reading during the summer also helps prevent the dreaded “summer slide” where students seem to forget all that they learned during the school year.  No one should go for two whole months without reading something! Reading during the summer helps relieve the August brain fog.
