Choice Reading Unit

In select sophomore classes, students will be given the opportunity to participate in a full unit of free-choice reading – students are responsible for selecting a book on their own, and will keep a reader’s journal as they proceed, chronicling their thoughts and questions about their text. We will add more resources to this page as we build this program.
