  • Summer Reading

    Over the summer, incoming freshmen are required to complete assigned readings in preparation for English classes. Transfer students are also required to complete readings for English class, as well as for honors and AP classes they will be taking. All English classes will devote the first days and weeks of the fall semester to discussing and writing about the summer reading, as well as taking a summer reading test.
     
    Students are expected to actively read the literature and apply their critical thinking skills to develop insightful ideas and questions about aspects of the stories such as plot, character, setting, symbolism, and theme. Students should make notes (questions, ideas, connections, insights, etc.) in the margins of their texts that demonstrate meaningful interaction with the literature.
