Summer Reading  

7th Grade Summer Reading Requirements

Historical Fiction

Choose one of the following books on the historical fiction list. Prepare either a summary or PowerPoint that includes a five to ten sentence paragraph for each of the following concepts:   the plot, characters, setting, theme, and vocabulary specific to the story. While detailing the vocabulary, choose words you didn’t know before or words vital to understanding what is happening in the story. For example, prairie and covered wagon would be words imperative to understand while reading Little House on the Prairie. Please include your name and title of the book read in the top right corner. This is officially due September 1st, however, you may bring it on the first day of school. Be sure to save it on your flash drive as soon as you are done to ensure that it does not get lost in the transition from summer into the school year. If you read one and have time, read another!! The more you read, the more you will be prepared for next year.

Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes

Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor
