Summer Reading: Incoming Ninth Grade Students
May 8th, 2017
The English Department requires reading to expand your general knowledge and encourage active engagement with big ideas. Annotating and/or completing reading assignments is your chance to have a conversation with the author and compose your own responses to the ideas presented.
If you have difficulty locating any books, you can order them on the Internet from either Amazon or Barnes & Noble. During the first week of fall semester, all English classes will discuss the books read over the summer. Your books and reading assignments will be due the first week of school and your annotations/assignments will be used for discussion and assessment. It’s time to hit the hammock with a glass of iced tea. Happy reading!
