@Tappan_Zee_HS ☀️Summer Assignments: ELA Reading
The purpose of a summer reading program is to encourage reading! Studies have shown that the best way to improve academic performance is to read! Read magazines, read the back of the cereal box, read your favorite blog…but READ! Of course, there is nothing better on a summer day than relaxing on the beach or in your favorite reading spot with a good book. Whether reading or listening to a book you gain the same satisfaction and benefits! Just be sure to do it!
As in previous years, the high school provides links to a wide variety of reading lists that address specific reading interests or needs, or that we think are just great lists. Summer reading requires students to read any two books. In the fall, an in-class writing assignment will be required of all students about the two books they read over the summer. Students should remember to write down at least the author and title for a minimum of two books.
