Non-Required Summer Reading 2018. (#DragonsNRSR2018)
It's almost summer, and hopefully you (and I) will have time to catch up on a little reading.  Ms. Cozzens & I are encouraging students to participate in Non-Required Summer Reading.  You can see her post with suggestions at the right. And you can click on my post of suggestions, also on the right.
Why summer reading?  Because you can, because you have time, and because it's good for your brain.  Studies have shown that students who don't read in the summer lose many of the gains they made during the previous school year.  There's even a term for it: Summer Slide.  
However, summer reading doesn't need to be a continuation of what you're required to read in school.  And it can even be fun.  So we're calling it Non-Required Summer Reading.  We hope you will participate and that you'll post what you're reading with the hashtag #DragonsNRSR2018.  You can tweet your posts to CHSBookeater and I'll see them that way.  I look forward to seeing what you're reading and sharing my own summer reads!
PS. Where can you find books?
