Summer Reading 2014
Reading can be enjoyable for all students, and is a skill that can and must be developed through practice. Summer reading offers an opportunity to exercise young minds, to celebrate literacy, and to cultivate a life-long love of reading.
The primary goal of summer reading is for students to maintain essential skills and to encourage them to read challenging and appealing books that contain an important theme.
This year, we strongly encourage students to challenge themselves and read as many books as they can (during the summer months). Students are also encouraged discuss the books they have chosen to read with their families and friends.
Selecting and Obtaining Books
Students may select books recommended in the Summer Reading LibGuide, or any other books of their choice. Books can be borrowed and eBooks downloaded from the school and public libraries.
Please follow the links at the top of the page for book suggestions for Summer Reading. The books suggested include recently published award winning young adult literature, faculty/staff favorites, and books included in local literacy initiatives.
Several area bookstores have received the Summer Reading LibGuide and will have books available for purchase in multiple formats – paperback, eBook, large print, and audiobook. Please consult the list of local libraries and bookstores for additional information.
Notice to Guardians
Although the books suggested in the Summer Reading LibGuide are appropriate for high school students, both students and guardians should be aware that books on the list may contain adult topics with adult language and/or controversial material. Different families have a variety of perspectives on what is most appropriate for a student’s interest and comfort level. Please review the books carefully before deciding which ones are most appropriate for your child.
Additional summer assignments may be given to students enrolled in particular courses (i.e. Advanced Placement and Pre-Advanced Placement courses). Information regarding those assignments will be distributed by the course teacher.
