SUMMER READING ASSIGNMENTS

Research has shown that students often lose some of their reading fluency and comprehension as well as writing skills during the summer months.  Fremont Christian School continues its summer reading assignment for all secondary students entering grades 6-12 in the fall.  This reading assignment is meant to provide practice so that students are able to retain and maintain their skills over the summer months.  It also provides them with an opportunity to start the school year with a shared reading experience.

For this year’s assignments, the faculty has revised the book lists and requirements as well as the note-taking assignment from previous years. Instructions for note-taking have been included with each grade level book list. Please read the assignment carefully; it provides information about the required reading, the student choice reading, and the writing assignments.  On the first day of school, August 13, 2018, students should bring both books (Kindle or other e-readers are fine) they have read along with their written work.

Choose the link for the grade level you will be entering in the fall, unless you have been instructed to do otherwise.

Grade 6 Grade 7
Grade 8 Grade 9
Grade 10 Grade 11
Grade 12 SciFi & Fantasy
ELD 2 ELD 3 ELD 4

 

If you will be enrolled in either AP English Language or AP English Literature: You only need to complete the AP English summer assignment.  AP English summer work will be emailed to enrolled students by the beginning of June.

Parents: Please work with your child very closely to choose his/her reading books for the summer.  We have included novels by a variety of authors from classic to contemporary and representing a range of cultures. Included in the lists are some contemporary high interest literature all of which are appropriate for high school and college preparedness.  While someone on staff has read all of these books, we recognize that not every parent would choose every book for their child (for example, some will have profanity).  Please read the online reviews to inform your decision and consider your child’s maturity and ability to synthesize difficult concepts.
