Summer Reading

OHS Summer Reading 2020_2021_Revised (1).docx

For ALL students:

 The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates by Wes Moore

 

All students in grades 9-12 should read this novel over the summer and be prepared to participate in projects, discussions, and seminars with their teachers and classmates upon return to school. To ensure that students have authentic opportunities to share their summer reading experiences, OHS will have a variety of projects and activities for students to choose from as we begin our fall semester. Students are highly encouraged to take notes, ask questions, make connections, and reflect as they read. OHS believes that choosing a school-wide novel will not only foster a love of reading, but also build on the sense of community and strength of teamwork that is so powerful here at Ooltewah High School. 

 

Students who are enrolled in IB, AP, or Honors classes will be expected to read at least one additional book over the summer to fulfil the requirements for that class. The book selections for those classes are listed below. Additional assignments for these readings will be emailed from your teacher this summer. 

 

 

IB12: THE HANDMAID’S TALE by Atwood

IB11: THE NAMESAKE by Lahiri

 

AP English Language & Composition (11): THANK YOU FOR ARGUING by Heinrichs

AP English Literature (12): HOW TO READ LITERATURE LIKE A PROFESSOR by Foster

Have a Great Summer & Happy Reading
