There are two kinds of Summer Reading for teens in Beverly: the public library’s program that rewards teens for reading with prizes and includes a variety of fun events, and the summer reading requirement for schools, including Beverly Middle School and Beverly High School.
Beverly Middle School
It’s been a year. Time to relax, take a deep breath — and read a great book!
Beverly Middle School Students are expected to read a book off our list and produce a response piece to demonstrate that you have read the book. You should also plan to read a graphic novel of your choice. Browse the list here to get exploring these great titles — then get your book and read it! When you are done, create a response piece to turn in this fall. You are also expected to read a graphic novel of your own choice – but you will not create a response piece about this book.
- Pick and read a book from the list (there are 29!)
- Do a response piece.
- Read a graphic novel of your choice (no assignment to do with this)
Finally – while these are minimum expectations, we definitely hope you will read much more all summer long! Find all of the details on the Beverly Middle School Summer Reading page.
Beverly Middle School Summer Reading List
Beverly High School
Your assignment is to read a book this summer that you have not read before and show evidence that you read it and thought about it. The summer reading list is a group of books that have been selected and are available at the Beverly Public Library, but you are not confined to this list. Feel free to read anything that sparks your interest.
Once you have read the book you need to show you have read it. You can create a project in response to the book. There are many different options for this. You can explore the summer reading website, or come up with your own.
You can attend one of the Beverly Public Library reading groups as well. If you have questions about your project idea, feel free to email Ms. Fecteau at firstname.lastname@example.org. Find all the details on the Beverly High School Summer Reading page.
