Summer Reading

The Hanover County Public Schools English department believes that summer reading is a good way to develop lifelong reading practices in students, to inspire a love of reading, and to give students common ground for learning at the outset of the school year. To foster a love of reading, contemporary and dynamic texts have been suggested for summer reading. Additionally, we are broadening what summer reading encompasses. We want students reading this summer, and reading doesn’t have to come from just a book.

Students can select a title (or titles) from the recommended summer reading list based on their English course, or they may select another type of reading from a magazine, technical manual, website, or online resource. Parents are encouraged to participate in the reading selection. If students or parents have concerns about choosing one of the recommended readings, they may select something else to read.

Summer reading is not required for a grade in standard and advanced English classes, but those who read and submit a reading response, will receive extra credit for their first 9 weeks English grade. Students may choose from a list of options for their reading response. The summer reading response option(s) should be turned into their English teacher during the second class block in September to receive the extra credit.

Pre-Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement English, students should complete the specific reading assignments for their course, which vary by school, and are mandatory for students in these classes.
