Each student attending Ursuline Academy is required to read during the summer in preparation for her English classes the following year. We have tried to gather a list encompassing all genres--the novel, poetry, drama, and the biography--many tastes and varying reading abilities.In addition to the required all-class reading selection, each student must also select a book from her grade-specific list. Each list was designed to highlight particular areas to be covered in the class. The student will be held accountable for her reading in the form of a written essay or project on the text chosen from the list. The assignment will be completed in the first two weeks of the fall semester.
