Balboa High School Summer Reading Assignment
What do you mean “summer reading?”
Each year, Balboa’s students are required to read two works of literature over the summer for their English class the following year. We want you to engage with some text over the summer to keep your reading muscles from atrophying.
What if I don't do the reading?
In the fall, you will be required by your ELA teacher to complete an assessment about your summer reading. Your teachers will expect that you have finished the reading by the first day of school. If you haven’t done the reading, it will affect your grade significantly.
How do I know what to read?
You are to choose ONE book from the grade-level lists below. Then, choose ONE book on your own. This book must be appropriate for school, interesting to you, and at your reading skill level. You may choose your second book from the grade-level list if you wish.
