The Charlotte Catholic English Department firmly believes summer reading compliments the curriculum and benefits our students by providing challenging, interesting literature that stimulates the intellect and imagination. Like athletes training in the off-season, students continue reading to exercise the skills required for doing their best.
Further, these selections provide common bases for diagnostic assessments of student performance, from basic reading comprehension to the identification and application of literary terms to the more formal analysis of imagery, themes, and genres. By providing engaging, provocative stories, summer reading books set the academic tone and expectations for the upcoming school year.
