Summer Reading 2017

Summer reading for our scholars has begun! Students must read a suggested novel and poem for their grade level or choose an appropriate grade level novel of choice as indicated in the packet. Scholars are expected to complete all journal entry worksheets and write a well-written essay that analyzes the author's use of literary tools in their novel and/or poem. 
 
Freshmen and sophomores, please download the 9th/10th grade packet. Your writing will be evaluated based on the informative writing rubric listed here on page 3: http://www.schoolimprovement.com/docs/Common%20Core%20Rubrics_Gr9-10.pdf
 
Juniors and seniors, please download the 11th/12th grade packet. Your writing will be evaluated based on the informative writing rubric listed here on page 3: http://www.schoolimprovement.com/docs/Common%20Core%20Rubrics_Gr11-12.pdf
 
Summer reading assignments will be collected when students return to school the week of August 21. Top writers will be invited to attend a celebratory Writers Luncheon in September and will have their writing featured on our IDEA website. 
 
We are excited to read your writing and review your reflective journal entries on your summer reading novels! 
 
Happy reading!
