Summer Reading 2018

Dear English Student and Caregivers:

The English department requires all incoming freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors to read at least one book during the summer, and we certainly encourage you to read more than the single title. Please select a book (or more) from the list provided.  The list includes a range of interests and genres. Please feel free to help your student come up with a final selection.

No formal written response is required before school begins; however, beginning-of-the-year activities will center around these books, so you might find it beneficial to make post-it notes or margin comments as you read.  Know that you will be held accountable for reading a book from the list. Please bring the book to class with you on the first day of school.

 

It is important for families to read and discuss together, so we encourage parents/guardians to read these books also.  All community libraries have been informed of our summer reading program. These books are available through Amazon.com, or any other online bookstore, as well as your local, independent bookstore.

 

Additionally, this year's 'One Book One Glenbard' Community Read will be Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried. All community members are invited to attend his August 22nd presentation.

 

We look forward to meeting you in August. In the meantime, enjoy the rays and a great read!

 

Sincerely,    

   

The Glenbard East English Department
