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
"Prioner B-3087," by Alan Gratz
"Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," by J.K. Rowling
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.
