Outside Reading Books (ORBs) are an essential part of the High School English Department’s coursework — including Summer Reading. Reading lists, assignments, study guides, and information for parents and guardians can be found here.
Reading lists for each grade’s English course and its respective Honors level are found immediately below. Also, please note that the reading lists for AP English Language & Composition and AP Literature & Composition are different.
The Parent/Guardian Outside Reading sign-off is available here.
As mentioned above, ORBs are central to the English Department’s coursework. Each has been carefully selected to encourage creative and critical thinking around cultures, beliefs, and ideas. If you have questions, our philosophy and objectives are outlined here, and our book evaluation form is also publicly available here.
If you have questions or concerns about a book, it is standard procedure to contact your student’s teacher. We encourage you to discuss the matter, and to make mutually agreeable arrangements should you still have concerns.
If you do not know your student’s teacher or have further questions, you are welcome to contact Mrs. Angie Edmonds, High School English Department Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
