    Summer Reading List 2023


           Summer reading for the 2023-2024 school year is required. The summer reading list allows students to prepare for the upcoming school year. A quiz will be given on all summer reading selections within the first week of school. Class discussions, essays, and tests will follow throughout the first quarter. While completing summer selections, students should take suitable notes in preparation for both written analysis and class discussion. Students should bring to class questions and thoughtful insight about their reading. Some texts are available online for free. Search for the book title and “online text.”
