AP & Honors English Students
Summer Reading 2017

  • Honors and AP English students are required to read a book specifically for English class.
  • Summer Celebration reading does not take the place of this book; you must read both.
  • Read and annotate (post-its or notepaper is ok for a library book) your AP/Honors book in preparation for a written assessment during the first couple days of class.

Focus Question: Books can serve as windows (glimpses into an unfamiliar world or experience) and/or mirrors (a reflection back to something we recognize in our own lives or experiences).
