                            Summer Reading 2010-2011
Over the summer of 2010, all incoming Wilson Freshmen must read at least two books: one of
these must come from the list below; one may be of your own choosing. When you return to
school in September, you will be tested on the books you have read.

To complete Summer Reading, do the following:

   1. Begin by selecting a title or titles from the list below. After you have chosen a title or
      titles, find your summer reading books at the public library or at a bookstore.
   2. This is a required, for-credit, assignment—Be prepared for a test on your Summer
      Reading. Your Summer Reading grade will be based on the test given and will equal
      one-half letter grade, five percentage points, of your first quarter grade.
