A rationale for summer reading:

  • To generate interest and pleasure in reading that enriches the educational experience

  • To prepare for thoughtful reading and discussion upon return to class in the Fall

  • To use time not available during the year to expand one’s reading repertoire

  • To keep the mind active and engaged in learning new things



General Instructions:

  • Use a journal during your summer reading to take notes about the main characters, main events, and portions of the book that made an impression on you.

  • Make sure you have READ each of the books assigned in its entirety.

  • You must read a minimum of 3 books this summer. There is 1 required text that you MUST read, and the other 2 books are to be of your choosing. In the table below you will see the required texts for your grade level.
