Summer Reading for year 2017

Greetings!  As you know summer reading is a tradition for most high schools across the United States.  Summer reading is a way for you to keep your brain "fit'" and it has been stated that the more a person reads, the better they read.  Overall, we encourage you to take advantage of the reading options available, and, hopefully, find a little enjoyment while reading.  

Step 1: Choose one of the following books:

The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger

The Book Thief, Markus Zusak

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, Mark Haddon



Step 2:   Read your chosen book and complete the provided reading guide and note-taking organizers

This novel guide is a simple way to think about what you have read. Click on the link to find the attachment for the NOVEL GUIDE.

*For English 10 Honors, this is required.

*English 10 College students that complete this assignment will receive bonus points in the form of a quiz grade.

Step 3:  Summer Reading Assessment: (English 10 Honors only)

When you return to school, you will apply your understanding of the book in an in-class essay assignment. You will be able to use your notes and the book to help write and support your essay.  Class activities designed to help with the understanding of each novel will be conducted.

If you have any concerns about  summer reading, feel free to contact any of the tenth grade English teachers via email.
