There are many benefits to reading during the summer break that include keeping your reading skills strong; but most importantly, reading keeps your imagination in tip-top shape, stretching it with each encounter with characters and settings that a new book brings.
Summer reading is required at the middle and high school levels for:
- All English/language arts classes grades 6-12
- AP U.S. History
- AP Research
- AP Seminar
- AP Art Studio
These resources can assist you in keeping your academic skills sharp during the summer months. You should definitely spend time relaxing and enjoying yourself, but keeping your mind engaged in thinking and being creative are essential.
