Summer Reading Expectations
Reading during the summer…
What will you read?
That is your decision, but not books you already read in middle school. We have provided
Recommended books from high school students and teachers across the country to help
your decision. However, you don’t have to choose from this list. You can choose any book.
summer, we want you to read things that interest you; to explore careers, people, places,
ideas you’ve wondered about; to have a great adventure.
How much should I read and when?
Read a minimum of two books of your choice (not books you’ve read in the past) before you
in the fall. Challenge yourself! The first full day back, you will be asked to submit the chart
that is on
the back of this letter. Then, in your 12
grade Language Arts class you will complete some
evaluation. This could be in the form of a book talk, a one-pager, or a small project about
reading. These are generally related to characters, conflicts, plot, and lessons learned. If you
any questions, please contact Secondary Literacy Coordinator, Amy Keith-Wardlow, at
