Required Summer Reading 2017ALL West Chicago Community High School students are required to participate in summer reading. The English faculty promotes summer reading for a number of reasons:
Fall English classes will include activities and writing based on these summer books. To find what book(s) are required by incoming grade level, see below. You can click on each graphic to view a printable PDF.
- Wildcats are readers!
- Reading is exciting when you find the right book! We want you to say, “I’m a reader!”
- If students do not read over the summer, (ideally a minimum of six books), “summer slide” can occur and the student will lose the reading gains made during the school year.
