Summer Reading 2017

Dear English Student and Parents:

The English department requires all incoming freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors to read at least one book during the summer. Select one book from the list designated for your upcoming grade. The list includes a range of interests and genres. Parents, please feel free to help your student come up with a final selection. In addition to the titles provided for each incoming class, ALL LEVELS also have the option to read the “One Book, One Glenbard” chosen book, Enrique’s Journey by Sonia Nazario.  Information regarding this book and opportunities related to “One Book, One Glenbard” can be found on the Glenbard East homepage.

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 note 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.  Books will also be available at the Glenbard East Book Fair held on May 18th and 19th.

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

Sincerely,

                       

The Glenbard East English Department
