2024 Summer Reading List

Published on Jun 03, 2024

Some Jefferson High School students take Honors, Advanced, AP, or other college-level courses for more intellectually challenging content and atmosphere. Several Honors and AP courses require summer assignments. The summer assignments engage students to promote critical thinking, expand background knowledge, and explore what it means to be human. The English Department believes in the power of reading and its ability to engage readers, promote critical thinking, and improve writing. We ask our students to spend a part of their summer engaging in reading and writing activities that we believe will help develop their identity as a reader and prepare them for the year ahead.

These assignments are mandatory for all students enrolled in the courses listed. Assignments should be completed by the first day of class.
