ELA & History Summer Reading Letter: June 14 , 2021 

Carver Students and Parents: 

As summer is quickly approaching, we want to make sure you are aware of the details of the CMHS ELA & History summer reading program. This program builds more opportunities to read and write across the curriculum and is designed to help transition students smoothly from one year to the next. Our use of choice lists provides students the freedom to select titles that match their reading levels and interests.

Students are required to read at least two books over the summer: 

  1. one from an ELA list and 
  2. one from a History list.

  • Students entering 6th grade will read only one book       from the ELA Choice List. (no history book)
  • Students entering 9th Honors English will be assigned The      Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time  in addition to a book from the 10th grade ELA Choice List.
  • Students entering 10th Honors English will be assigned The      Great Gatsby in addition to a book from the 10th         grade ELA Choice List.
  • Students enrolled in AP English or History courses are assigned different reading from those AP teachers. 

English: Students going into grades 6 – 8 must complete a ELA Reading FORM: due by the first day of school. Students in all grades should be ready to demonstrate their knowledge of the books through presentation, writing, and discussion. 

History: Students going into grades 7-11 must complete a History Reading FORM: due by the first day 


Some copies of the texts are available at the Carver Public Library. They are also available for purchase from Barnes & Noble,, and many other book stores.  Many of the titles (including many audiobook versions) are available for free at the following page:  CMHS Library Digital Resources.


Enjoy the summer!

We look forward to discussing these books in the fall.
