Summer Reading Lists

Dear Students and Parents:

The Hanover County Public Schools English department believes that summer reading is a good way to develop lifelong reading practices in students, to inspire a love of reading, and to give students common ground for learning at the outset of the school year. To foster a love of reading, contemporary and dynamic texts have been suggested for summer reading. Additionally, we are broadening what summer reading encompasses. We want students reading this summer, and reading doesn’t have to come from just a book.

Students can select a title (or titles) from the recommended summer reading list based on their English course, or they may select another type of reading from a magazine, technical manual, website, or online resource. Parents are encouraged to participate in the reading selection. If students or parents have concerns about choosing one of the recommended readings, they may select something else to read.

The English summer reading information can be found on the following CHART. The chart provides the details of for all grade and course levels. Additionally, the chart includes hyperlinks to all of the necessary documentation and assignments to have a success and enjoyable experience with the English summer reading.

PLEASE NOTE — A few parents and students had some great questions about the Summer Reading List. As a result, we did not change any of the assigned reading however we did clarify and reorganize how the information is being presented for easier digestion.
