Our summer reading program provides students with the opportunity to maintain and sharpen their reading and thinking skills over the school break. All students are required to participate in our schoolwide program by reading the book for the class level they are entering in the fall. The novels will be integrated into the curriculum throughout the academic year.
The students do not need to complete any worksheets but are asked to contemplate the themes, connections, characters and social questions for their assigned book. In addition, students should use the guided questions to enhance deeper understanding of their book. Both novels coincide with literature and units that are studied during the academic year and also address many present issues. These novels will be a backdrop to activities that will be incorporated and student input from their novel is expected.
