Summer Reading Information

English I Pre-AP

We will begin the 2019-2020 school year with a study of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.  A major aspect of our study will include in-class annotations the first week of school, so students will need to purchase their own copies of the book before the semester begins.  It can be found online or in most book stores.

We will be moving quickly as soon as the year begins, so it is highly recommended that students get a head start on reading over the summer to help with the always busy first week of high school.
