Kent County High School

This year, we would like you to read at least one book of your choice. 

If you aren’t sure which books you would like, do some research! Get suggestions from your peers, parents or guardians or look up authors you’ve loved in the past for some ideas. 

The only requirement is that you cannot choose books you’ve already read or that are in the curriculum from Kent County Public Schools.

What gets turned in?

After you’ve chosen a book and loved reading it, you will have one assignment to complete. On the downloadable assignment sheet, you will find a Choice Board. You must complete one choice from the board before returning to school in August.
