Outside Reading for Students 2019-2020

It is that time of year again – outside reading announcements! We continually tailor our program to meet the needs of our students – keeping in mind our 4x4 schedule, we have outside reading instead of summer reading. Some students will not be taking an English class until January. The outside reading requirements are listed here, but will also be posted on our website. As always, we will be giving our requirements to the public library as well as Barnes and Noble, so that they may prepare for the extra traffic surrounding the titles. If you have any questions regarding the outside reading requirements, feel free to contact your student’s English teacher or the department chairperson – Kristen.karszes@beaufort.k12.sc.us

Directions for College Prep English Students:

We are supporting college prep students and their parents in making enjoyable choices for reading. On the website, you will see a recommended list of books. These books are the South Carolina Young Adult Book Award 2018-2019 nominees. We recommend your student read at least one of these books to gain a great start toward being able to participate in the voting for the best SC Young Adult Book in February. If your student reads three books from this list, he or she will be able to participate in the voting process. In addition to or in lieu of the recommended list of books, students may choose to participate in the public library’s Summer reading program. Please contact them for details; however, a quick synopsis is provided by the graphics below:
