Newsome requires summer reading for Honors English and AP classes. Summer reading is recommended for all students as a means of broadening their base of knowledge, keeping verbal skills fresh and preparing for standardized tests. Colleges and universities across the nation have suggested reading lists for incoming freshmen. The works below are included on those recommended lists.

Reading will be checked during the first two (2) weeks of class by essay, multiple choice or alternative assessments. Students will reference these works during the regular school year. Click Here to download a copy of the list.
