In the summer readings, there is a mix of nonfiction and fiction genres, and the selections range from high-interest contemporary works to traditional, canonical texts. Although we have made every effort to consider content and subject matter in order to avoid sensitive topics, controversial issues, or mature subject matter, parents or guardians are ultimately the best judges of what is suitable for their students. Therefore, we strongly suggest that parents or guardians evaluate each selected text to determine whether a work is appropriate for their students. We hope that students enjoy the works we have selected, and if there are any questions, please contact Michael Feuer, Oak Ridge High School Department of English Coordinator: mfeuer@ortn.edu.
