The English Department organizes an annual summer reading program designed to engage and to promote reflection. The 2016 lists and questions are as follows:
Students should annotate as they read. Taking good notes will help in the fall, when studens will write about their selections and discuss these books in class.
As a reminder: Each Middle School student (6-8) must read one mandatory summer reading book and one selected summer reading book before the school year begins. Each Upper School student (9-12) must read two mandatory summer reading books and one selected summer reading book before the school year begins. The exceptions are the two AP courses; both have larger reading lists.
Happy reading, and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!
