Guidelines for Summer Reading/Writing Assignment
• Students should make a cover sheet. They should add their name, grade and “Summer Reading Portfolio” as their title.
• Students should have one page for each portfolio requirement.
• Papers should be typed double-spaced with a Times New Roman 12-point font. If Times New Roman is not available, you may substitute for another plain font such as Calibri or Arial.
• Students should write in complete sentences with appropriate punctuation and grammar.
• Students should have this packet placed in a report cover with pages in order of the above numbers.
• This is an independent project. Any evidence of plagiarism or collaboration with another student will result in failure of summer reading.
• The summer reading portfolios will count as the first major test of the year in language arts.
• You will also take a test on the novel for your first major test grade of the year in reading.
Please do not put off your reading during the summer. A little bit each day can make a huge difference, and you might just enjoy it.
