2014-15 Summer Reading
For the ACCJSH Summer Reading Program students have chosen from among several different titles at each grade level. After listening to book talks, students selected their top choices.
During the summer of 2014, students are expected to read their selected summer reading book. The day they return to school in August, they will be expected to have completed one of the summer reading activities of their choice (see below a sample of some of the choices available. Students received a copy of their individual teacher’s expectations upon receiving the summer reading book). Students should bring their completed activity with them on the first day of school. The summer reading activity will be the first assignment of the 2014-15 school year.
A sampling of the summer reading activity options are listed below:
All of the summer reading activities seek evidence that the student has read the book and that they understand its message(s), theme(s), and plot.
