Milford Summer Reading
Welcome to the Milford High School summer reading page for 2021. At the top of the page, you will find links for all of our summer reading assignments for English classes 9-12. Be sure to check under the "More" tab for AP Language, and AP Literature, as well as a contacts page for Milford Junior High and High School. Read all requirements for the class(es) in which you are enrolled.
**SUMMER 2021** Incoming 7th and 8th graders WILL NOT have summer reading in 2021. Summer reading will only apply to incoming 9th-12th graders.
ALL students in 9-12 will read the #MilfordReads 2021 selection, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan. See information on the book, reviews, and Amazon ordering information here.
Annotate accordingly and take notes. Be prepared to participate in class and school-wide discussions, assignments, and assessments. Follow our summer reading Twitter (@MilfordReads) and Instagram (@MilfordReads) accounts for updates about activities and events related to Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore!
Students enrolled in Honors English 9, Honors English 10, AP English Literature and AP English Language at Milford High School have additional summer reading requirements. Use the links on the above and under the "More" tab to navigate to the pages with those requirements.
There are no summer reading requirements for English electives.
A Note About Policy: If a parent requests that his/her own child not read a given book, the teacher and/or school administrator should resolve the issue, perhaps by arranging for use of alternative material meeting essentially the same instructional purpose.
