Curl Up With A Good Book This Summer

Southern Guilford High School English Department has expanded summer reading to include all students in a "One School, One Theme" project. Students at all grade levels will select reading materials from the same list organized around a common theme. A new theme will be selected each year.

During the summer, read your book. As you read, jot down some notes about the book's main ideas, plot, and characters. This is helpful if you don't have English until the spring semester. If you own the book, you can highlight and mark pages in it too.

During the first weeks of school, class activities will incorporate the materials from the summer reading list. Students will be asked to describe how their reading contributes to their understanding of the chosen theme and collaborate with classmates to synthesize multiple sources. 

Note: Students taking AP English courses have different assignments. Please see the 11th Grade AP or 12th Grade AP pages for the AP requirements
