The North Royalton High School English Department is pleased to release the 2020-21 SUGGESTED Summer Reading Program for all North Royalton High School students. Due to the uncertainty regarding school and library closures, no assessments will be given this fall. *The exception is AP English. However, the department believes that summer reading will be beneficial to our students in a number of ways. First, summer reading will assist our students in meeting the increased demands of the AIR tests. Success on these tests relies on strong reading and writing abilities in all disciplines. To that end, we expect that continued practice throughout the summer will help our students retain and hone their reading skills. Moreover, since 90% of our seniors indicate that they are college bound, we hope that increasing our literacy goals will promote success on college entrance exams and college-level work as well as prepare them for the increasingly competitive world beyond high school. Most importantly, we hope summer reading will encourage reading among our students as a lifelong recreational pursuit.
