Haverhill High School Summer Reading Lists

Classical Academy Reading Lists

Other Reading Lists

Note that while the College Board (who owns the AP exam) does not have a reading list, per se, they do give some description of what they expect AP English students to be gaining from their reading. According to their site,

In their AP course, students should also read works from several genres and periods — from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century — but, more importantly, they should get to know a few works well. They should read deliberately and thoroughly, taking time to understand a work’s complexity, to absorb its richness of meaning, and to analyze how that meaning is embodied in literary form. In addition to considering a work’s literary artistry, students should consider the social and historical values it reflects and embodies. Careful attention to both textual detail and historical context should provide a foundation for interpretation, whatever critical perspectives are brought to bear on the literary works studied.”

    There is a reading list for the Classical Academy also but I do not have a copy of it. Maybe Debbie Sasso-Flannagan or Paul White have it.

  2. Henry,

    The Classical Academy reading list was a list of books suggested for summer reading. That list has since expired. As soon as there is a list for the next group of Classical Academy freshmen, I’ll get it to you.
