The goal of the Summer Reading Program is to encourage independent reading, nourish intellectual analysis, enhance reading comprehension, supplement academic reading across the curriculum, and generate discussion and activities based on shared experience and inquiry.
Students are to read each text and complete activities assigned to courses in which they are enrolled for the upcoming year. Students are expected to arrive at school on the first day having read the assigned text - carefully, analytically, and entirely. Appropriate assignments will be given in English language arts classes. Students will be required to participate in a variety of written and oral assessments. A paperback copy of the book should be purchased and brought to class on the first day of school.
