Summer Reading

Dear Students and Parents:
What’s the last great book that you read? Isn’t it nice to be able to read at your leisure over the summer months? To encourage reading and prepare you for the coming school year, the English department is continuing the summer reading program for all students registered for advanced-level classes, grades 9-12, and some academies or specialized programs. Please read through the following list to identify the requirements for each course. It is the responsibility of each student to complete the reading by the start of the school year. Students may buy or borrow the book(s); this is your choice. Please have the book with you when you come to school at the beginning of the school year.

In addition to reading, it is expected that each student will ponder what he or she reads. To this end, each student should either write notes in his or her own handwriting (in the form of a dialectical journal or annotations) unless otherwise noted. Please see the attached instructions and examples. Of course, students may go beyond these requirements in their note taking.

Students should bring their work with them to school on the first day of the school year, as their independent reading will be assessed within the first days or week of the school year. Assessments of required readings will be worth approximately 10% of the first nine-weeks grade (except for AP, which will be more than 10%).

Finally, remember, you’re not limited to what you see here. Read beyond these lists! Worlds of great ideas, interesting characters, and memorable turns of phrase await you.

Wishing you insightful and enjoyable reading,
The English Teachers at RHS
