Crockett High School Summer Reading
Who: Students enrolled in preAP and AP English classes for the 2018-2019 school year.
Why: Students will become familiar with a variety of genres and time periods, while practicing their close reading skills. This will all culminate with the AP English 4 test where one of the essays asks students to discuss how a given theme is developed in a text of their choosing. The more you read, the easier it will be to choose an appropriate text!
What: Students are required to read at least TWO books off the recommended reading lists. There will be an assignment based on these readings when school starts in the fall.
For book choices, check out the following lists.
Albert Blog (shorter list, but has descriptions of books): https://tinyurl.com/y8tz2d4p
PrepScholar (lots of choices!): https://blog.prepscholar.com/ap-literature-reading-list
Where: You can find access to these texts in many places!
