Summer Academic Enrichment Program

Reading for Pleasure

Readers in this class will enjoy the opportunity to select novels of their choice to read independently. Tasks will include reflecting on their reading in daily journals and  through creative presentations. Students will engage in lively discussions with their peers through teacher directed seminars while using their unique perspectives, as developed in the context of their own reading journeys, to inform their perspectives and positions on relevant topics. Students in this class  will grow in their understanding of History, the Sciences, the Arts, as well as philosophy and ethics as they listen to podcasts, watch TED Talks, and read articles which will appeal to the curious, resourceful minds of young learners.
