Third Page Thursday/First Page Friday
At the close of every block period, we will read the first pages of a high interest novel to generate interest in reading. All novels can be found for checkout in the Media Center.
"Red Queen," by Victoria Aveyard
"Unwind," by Neal Shusterman
Good readers are good thinkers and good writers.
Throughout the year, students will be expected to read a minimum of 4 choice books (one per quarter), of any genre, and complete a short book recommendation form after finishing the book.
We will visit the Media Center at least once a quarter for all students to check out a book of their choice to use for Sustained Silent Reading during our Block Days (10-15 minutes at the beginning of every Block period). Students may choose to take their books to and from class, or leave them in a secure area of the classroom, but books must be available during SSR time.
