SUMMER 2016 Lists and assignments


Welcome to Branford High School's Summer Reading website. On this page you will find all of the school's different summer reading assignments. In addition, there are related links you might find useful if you are interested in extending your summer reading or looking for more information. We've designed the summer reading program not only to maintain skills during vacation, but also to foster the enjoyment of reading as a leisure activity. Therefore, students have many choices of titles, from classic to contemporary, from science fiction to human interest, fiction and non-fiction.

The Blackstone Library has copies of all books on the list. Click here to see what's available and reserve them online (a library card is needed to reserve a title).

The Connecticut State Department of Education also has a resource page with information about the Governor's Summer Reading Challenge. The state of Connecticut Department of Education also lists book reading suggestions by grade level. Click her for state website.

NOTE TO PARENTS: You play a vital role in encouraging the reading habits of your child. We encurage parents to read along with their children and help them select the most appropriate titles. Before selecting a book, please review it with your child to determine if it is appropriate. Several websites, including Commonsensemedia.org and Amazon.com, offer reviews of literature to help parents and students make the right selection for them.

If you have any questions about the summer reading assignment or anything else, please feel free to e-mail or call the English Department at 488-7291
