Read one literary work of fiction and one nonfiction book from the list below. This will be a total of two books. Be sure that you read titles listed for your grade level as of September. Also, if you do not have an active library card, please obtain one during the summer.
When you return to school in the fall, you will be tested on your summer reading assignment. This exam will be administered during the first marking period and will count as a test grade. In order to prepare for the exam you should take thorough, hand-written notes while you are reading. For each book that you read, your notes should include: the title, author, names of the main characters, setting, theme and a brief description of the plot. In addition, you should maintain an ongoing list of new vocabulary words and their definitions.
Any inquiries regarding the summer assignment should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please write Summer Assignment on the subject line.
