Simsbury High School English teachers believe that an effective language arts program offers students the opportunity to practice essential skills independently. English teachers hope to encourage lifelong readers within the classroom and beyond its boundaries. Reading over the summer maintains fluency and exercises close-reading skills.
The summer reading material:
introduces students to upcoming course themes and concepts.
provides a baseline for assessing individual comprehension and analytical skills.
allows teachers to begin the year as a community of learners on day one.
Completion of the summer reading work is a requirement for all selected courses.
Summer assignments for AP Biology, AP Chemistry, and AP Physics 1 are posted on individual Google Classrooms. All school counselors have the codes, and students enrolled along with their parents have received the code in an email.
