Junior Summer Reading
Class of 2023


All Juniors must read regardless of English placement:

Wes Moore - The Other Wes Moore - ISBN 9780385528207

While you read, you may wish to take notes, annotate, or use other active reading strategies. There is no formal assignment due at the beginning of the year, but you will be given an in-class writing assignment during the first full week of classes. This assignment will ask you to call upon your understanding and thinking about what you read, and to make specific references to the text as necessary.

Please note: Double check each ISBN to ensure that you have purchased the correct paper version of each text (no eBook or PDF allowed).
