Summer Reading

Summer Reading Requirements

Dear Families,

     Summer reading is required for all Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical School students, including incoming freshmen.  All students are expected to read at least one book over the summer. The book can be fiction or nonfiction but must be written for young adults or adults.  

     Each English teacher will assign a summer reading project.  Past assignments have included book talks, Goodreads book reviews, and creative projects based on the books such as movie trailers, children’s book adaptations, sculptures, music playlists, and more.

     Students entering AP Language and Composition or AP Literature and Composition courses have a separate summer reading assignment.  Students who are enrolled in these courses will be given the assignment before the end of school by the teacher.

          Thank you, and read on!
