Welcome to NDCL's Summer Reading Headquarters! Please read carefully all of the information below! Direct any questions to Mrs. Amy Myers at email@example.com. Thanks and happy reading!
NDCL's 2019 Summer Reading Program
NDCL's summer reading program is aimed at providing an opportunity for students to engage in reading in a positive way to encourage life long learning and building community. We offer a variety of genres, reading levels and topics to reach all students interests.
In an effort to build community, we have curated our book grade level book lists around our core values of: Justice, Respect, Integrity, and Community.
Each student is to choose ONE book from the appropriate grade level summer reading book list. Each student is responsible for obtaining a copy of their chosen book. While reading the chosen book, all students must complete a written assignment (available the left side menu) that will be turned into English teachers upon return to school in the fall.
*Depending on class schedules, some students, except incoming freshmen, may have additional summer reading to complete in their English classes--individual teachers and departments are in charge of those materials and can be found on the left side menu.
In addition, using the written assignment as guidance, students will create a product that will interpret the core value in relation to their book. Some examples could be: an infographic, a playlist for the book (with explanations), a Flipgrid, a Movie Poster, collage, PSA or another creative portrayal of their book!
*This product is not due until the summer reading celebration day slated for late August/Early September- TBD.
Students are welcome and encouraged to complete the final product during the summer!
Summer Reading Celebration
To celebrate reading as a community, we will dedicate a segment of one day in the 2019-2020 school year to our summer reading books with book discussions and presentations. During the Summer Reading Celebration Day (date TBD), students will present their final product (interpretation of their core value and its relationship to their book) to their group. In order to connect our last core value of Excellence, students will vote on the two best interpretations from their group. Those selected will be displayed for the entire school!
*Further instructions and details will be shared with all students upon return to school in the fall of 2019!
