English I Summer Reading 2019-2020

Summer Reading is mandatory for all incoming freshmen. While no assignments will be due at the start of the school year, it is HIGHLY encouraged students have this read as the workload might prove overwhelming if students wait until the start of the semester.

"This richly textured novel, woven from the strands of small-town life, lets readers walk in the shoes of one fully realized character after another."

The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.

Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior - to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story.

Assignment:

In an effort to help all students be successful, we are taking a different approach to summer reading this year. 

Assigned novel: To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee 

We are letting students know in advanced the first reading assignment of their freshmen year. Unlike previous years, students will not have an assignment over the summer to complete with the book. 

That said, we highly recommend they read it over the summer so they will be familiar with the content when they are in English. The book will be officially assigned at the start of the semester when they are enrolled in ELA. They will have approximately six weeks to read it. It will be an outside of class reading assignment, paired with the usual ELA content that will be covered during class (thus the recommendation for students to read the text over summer, so they are not overwhelmed).

Therefore, if students complete the reading over the summer, they will only need to review the content as the novel is being discussed in class. We hope this will eliminate confusion over summer assignments and provide adequate time for all students to prepare so no student will be at a disadvantage.  

Thank you for helping us promote summer reading.
