If you are considering AP Lit for English your senior year, there are a few things you need to know:
1. You are signing up to do a lot of reading outside of class.
2. You are committing to developing your craft as a writer. This means a lot of timed essays.
3. You are taking the AP Exam in the spring.
Summer Reading
Although summer reading is not required, it is strongly encouraged. To have an advantage over your peers, it is advised that you build reading stamina over the summer.
Genre Choices
  • Novels
  • Plays
  • Poems
Summer Reading Recommendations
These titles have been recommended by both Mrs. Pashby and Mr. Warner:
Kindred by Octavia Butler

Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
