Important Change to English Summer Reading Requirements
Given recent changes to the Tennessee Academic Standards for English Language Arts, accompanied by an alignment of updated assessments, Stewarts Creek High School is currently reviewing the process and selections of Summer Reading Requirements for English I-IV. Our goal is to align book selections and requirements with the standards and to foster a meaningful and rigorous instructional approach across and within each grade level. Once selections and guidelines have been approved, an updated list of summer reading requirements will be posted to this page. Previous reading lists should be discarded.
