Central Catholic High School's "All School Summer Reading List" is designed with two goals in mind: The first is to get every student to read something over the summer. The second is to enable our school community to use that reading to foster discussion on a set of contemporary issues.
Rather than dictate a single book at each grade-level, we have opted to create a list of titles that relate to a common theme, and allow students a degree of choice in selecting their summer reading. Student choice is tied to greater engagement and “ownership” of summer reading, and one of the key goals is for students to find enjoyment, or connection, in what they read, not just to have “homework” for the summer.
“Social Justice: Justice in Action” is the theme for the 2018 Summer Reading List. Each book features people taking action against current social injustices (examples: racism, sexism, class-ism), and most books prominently feature teens as the ones taking action.
The list contains a mix of 21st-century Young Adult literature, Non-Fiction, and a Graphic Novel. All of these books were chosen because they are exceptional examples that provide excellent material for generating discussion on our topic, while also being accessible and readable. Additionally, we took care to find books with significant critical acclaim. Each book on the list has merit as we seek to meet our goals for the Summer Reading Program. However, some books employ strong language or more mature scenarios in delving into the theme: social injustices are not always comfortable topics. The website has detailed information on each text, and should allow each Central Catholic family to choose the summer reading that is a best fit for their students.
If your student is enrolled in an Honors course for the 2018-2019 school year, they need to read two separate texts. The information is clearly displayed on the website. Please make sure they read both texts in preparation for the beginning of a new school year. If you have any questions, please contact Nic Netzel, School Librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
