High School Summer Reading
Because Queen Anne’s County Public Schools wishes to foster an interest in and a habit of reading, we are continuing a summer reading requirement for all high school students including incoming ninth graders. One of our goals in English/language arts instruction is to encourage students to become lifelong readers. In addition, we wish to assist students in improving their reading skills and we know that students improve their reading through practice. For this reason, we are encouraging all students to continue the practice of reading throughout the summer. Students enrolled in Honors courses should consult websites prepared by College Board and Advanced Placement and works referred to on the AP Literature and Composition Exam (1970-2014). Many of these works are challenging so we encourage students to select those titles that fit their interests and stimulate thought. Choices for the summer reading must be full-length novels or plays.
