Summer Reading

Summer Reading at Westfield High School

Welcome to the Westfield High School Summer Reading website! In support of developing students as life-long learners and independent critical thinkers, the WHS English Department and Library Media Specialists have developed a list of recommended* summer reading texts and learning experiences that are thematically aligned with English courses (grades 9-12). Use the tabs in the upper right of the screen or the links below to navigate to each grade level's recommended texts and experiences. Please assist your child in selecting a text that suits his/her interests and maturity level. For students, reading one of the selected texts included on the book list is a recommended activity*, but not a required one this summer. Happy Reading!

*Please note, students enrolled in AP Literature or AP Language course for next school year (2019-20) will be required to read texts recommended by their individual teachers. These required text selections will be communicated to parents and students through a letter.
