Dear Students and Parents,
Reading is an important part of every student’s education. Your summer reading list has been designed to enable you to read for both information and pleasure. Please read two non-fiction selections and two fiction selections.
All of the books on the list tie into what you will be studying as an 8th grade student. You will be asked to draw upon your knowledge of these texts often. You will find the connections to be helpful throughout the year as well as when you begin preparing for the 8th grade Ohio Achievement Assessment. Copies of all the books can be found at the Norwood Public Library and for purchase at Joseph Beth Booksellers. You may also consult with 8th grade reading teachers Mrs. Lillard and Mrs. Bose.
