As in the past, all Northview High School Pre-AP and AP English students in grades 9-12 are required to read two books during the summer.
This summer, the two books are the short drama, "A Raisin in the Sun," and the classic novel, "Frankenstein."
Students are expected to read the full, unabridged, original texts.
During the first few days of the fall semester, students will take a 100-point reading exam covering the books.
For the benefit of students, two reading nights will take place during the summer at the high school. The nights allow for discussion and questions as well as an opportunity to test while the material is fresh in the mind and while additional academic material is not a pressure.
Students may choose to test in the summer or in the first few days of the fall semester, but all students must take the test covering the two books.
Either way, the test score will be counted in the first grading period.
Reading nights are as follows:
* "A Raisin in the Sun," by Lorraine Hansberry, June 28, 7 p.m., Northview Media Center, and
* "Frankenstein," by Mary Shelley, July 28, 7 p.m., Northview Media Center.
Students should bring a pencil and should plan to be picked up between 7:30-8 p.m.
