THE WOODLANDS HIGH SCHOOL 2017-18 SUMMER READING

Click here for the summer reading list PDF.

Electronic Readers are welcome. Used books are welcome.

In Conroe ISD, we encourage all students to read over the summer in order to enrich learning and provoke thought. Summer reading strengthens reading skills, increases academic achievement, fosters a love for reading, and empowers students to become life-long learners.

Additionally, students who enroll in a Pre AP or AP English course are expected to engage in summer reading as it prepares students for the upcoming school year and creates an initial common framework for classroom discussion and instruction.
