Aldine ISD Summer Reading Response Log
High School English I Grade 9
(entering English I)
In this packet you will find: a list of books you can choose to read, a list of products for you to respond to each novel and ways for you to work on vocabulary for each book you read. Use this Reading Response Packet as a guide for the requirements to record your summer reading. Look through this packet carefully to see what is required before you begin. Write all notes and responses on your own paper, perhaps a notebook, and turn in to your English teacher. During the summer you are expected to read and respond to at least three books if you will be in regular English and at least five books if you will be in AP, GT, or Dual Credit English. One book is required from the list provided on page 2 if you are in regular English. Two books are required from the list provided if you are in AP, GT, or Dual Credit English. The other selections may be made from one of the suggested lists that are available on the district web site (www.aldine.k12.tx.us). You may also select books that have been recommended to you by a friend or your teacher.
