Summer Reading List 2017

Summer Reading 2017: Tampa Catholic students are expected to continue to improve literacy skills over the summer. For this reason, each English course has an assigned summer reading book for students to read. During the first quarter, students will be assessed on their understanding and comprehension of the text. Students should be able to:  Comprehend the basic elements of the book: plot points, names of characters, when and where the book takes place, etc. Reflect upon the book, making connections to self, other texts, and the world. Discuss the assigned book with their peers and teacher.  Write about the assigned book, including details and evidence from the text to support their points.
You may purchase Summer Reading books via MBS online bookstore.
