Fighting climate change one idea at a time
Welcome to the NMH Summer Reading Program.
Summer reading expectations at NMH are divided into two categories: reading students do for their English courses, and reading students do to participate in a discussion group early in the academic year.
The books required for English courses are designed to introduce students to and help them prepare for the academic challenges they will face in each course. These readings are integral to the classroom experience, and it is important that students read with intention, take meaningful notes, and think about the important characteristics of the work on their own before they return to school.
The school-wide book gives students and faculty a chance to read and discuss a book in common. During the Spring Semester, students and faculty nominate books. Last year over 40 books were nominated. These were narrowed to 16 books and the community voted to select the winning book. Students will discuss the book in advising groups at the start of the year.
The reading assignments, both for English and the school-wide book initiative, are based on grade level. Please see the link below for more information.
