Beverly High School Summer Reading 2012

Every student is required to pick one book from the list on the other side of this sheet to read this summer. The six word summaries should help you remember the books as they were presented to your English Class.

In September we will have an advisory where you will talk about your book. You will be required to do a reading response activity and bring it to this advisory. The reason for doing the assignment is to show that you have read the book. Your assignment will not be graded if it does not show evidence that you read the book. The grade you earn on summer reading will be your first English quiz grade for the semester.

You may read as many of the books as you like, but you only need to respond to and discuss one. Please choose a book you have not read before. If your book is part of a series, feel free to read more in the series. Be aware that these books were chosen to appeal to a broad range of students of different ages, interests and reading abilities. If for any reason you are not comfortable reading the book you have chosen put it down and choose another one.

If you have any questions, email bfecteau [at} beverlyschools [dot] org - substitute the @ for at and the . for dot!
