Senior Honors Summer Reading List

Dear Incoming Honors Literature Senior:

Listed below are the titles for your required summer reading assignment.   Upon your return to school in September, your teacher will require you to complete an assignment based on your reading and to write both an argumentative and a college essay, which will count for part of your first marking period grade. All books may be borrowed from the public library, purchased at your local bookstore, or on the Internet.


Grade 12-Honors World Literature-E7H


                           Albom                                         Tuesdays with Morrie        

                           Hosseini                                     The Kite Runner               

                          Suskind                                       Life, Animated            











You must read all three books and complete a double entry journal for the class you will enter in September. Instructions for completing a DEJ as you read, are listed on the flip side of this list. Teachers will work with you in September to use your textual evidence and assist you to write a highly effective essay. We encourage you to read independently. Extra credit will be given to those students who show evidence of reading more than the required three texts.


Challenge yourself!    Have a wonderful summer!
