Senior High School Summer Reading Requirements

EWG JHS Summer Reading Requirements

EWG Junior High School

All students entering 7th and 8th grade are required to select one novel from the EWG JHS Summer Reading List to read over the summer.  

The list can be found on this website and on the EWG junior high website. Students will complete the novel prior to the start of school and be prepared to engage in meaningful discussion upon their return. Though we appreciate that many students like to start their assignments right away, we suggest that students read the novel later in the summer, so that the details of the book are fresh in their mind during the first few weeks of school.

Students should review the questions on the graphic organizer (see document on this website) prior to starting their novel.  While they read, they should record thoughts and key facts on the organizer. The graphic organizer will be collected during book talks at the beginning of the year.

Bonus - There are many great books on the book list.  If students read 3 novels and complete 3 graphic organizers, they will receive a free admission to a Student Council event of their choice during the year!  Please note there are several Middle School Book Award selections if you are completing journals for next year’s book battle!

Enjoy your vacation and happy reading!

Please note:  Not all books are appropriate for all readers.   Please check the Library Catalog to search for, and read ebooks and audio books.
