Summer Reading

It’s that time of year; time to think about summer reading!

Depending on whether you are enrolled in a college prep or honors/UConn English class for the 2017-2018 school year, you will be responsible for reading either one or two books over the summer and taking high quality notes to be used in a Socratic Seminar. It is crucial you do this assignment well, since your summer reading Socratic seminar(s) will be your first grade for the 2018-2019 school year.

Enjoy your summer reading, and get off to a great start for the new school year!
