ELA Summer Assignments

Summer 2019

Criteria and Sources for Selection

Reading lists for all grades are designed to accommodate a wide range of ability and interest levels. Adolescents gravitate toward novels that deal with important issues that are relevant to their lives, and so some books on the lists explore complex – and sometimes confusing – emotions related to relationships, violence, sexuality, and identity. Any given list will reflect a blend of classic and contemporary works of fiction and nonfiction, the depiction of characters who exhibit a variety of cultural differences, a representation of minority authors and characters, and a balanced list of titles in terms of gender appeal. Parents are encouraged to assist students in making choices that are appropriate for and acceptable to both the student and his/her family. For assistance with such decisions, you may wish to consult reviews on the School Library Journal website: https://www.slj.com/.
