PreAP and AP Summer Reading

Summer Reading Assignments


Pasadena ISD understands how important summer is for students to unwind and to regenerate, however, we also understand the need for AP students to stay competitive in the academic arena in order to vie for scholarship opportunities and equitable access to select universities. Therefore, in order to instill the academic and cultural literacy needed for competency in the AP English Literature and Composition classroom, and in order to help students prepare for the AP English Literature and Composition exam, We highly recommend students complete the summer reading assignment. We want the reading to be both enjoyable and valuable, so we are encouraging students to read for pleasure more than one book.
