Summer Enrichment Reading Assignments
Davidson County Schools students enrolled in Honors and AP English I, II, III, and IV are required to complete a Summer Enrichment Reading Assignment.
Students are required read an assigned text and to write an essay based upon their reading on the second day of the school year regardless of which semester they are scheduled to take English.
Reading assignments are specific to the school in which a student is enrolled and is attached to the English course they will take in the 2012-2013 school year. Therefore, if the student is currently in ninth grade, they will complete the summer reading assignment for Honors English 10 at their school.
Teachers will meet with students in early May to distribute this information. Please see the student's English teacher for questions or further details.
