This week's topic is:
TOP TEN BOOKS ON THE SUMMER TBR LIST
This list is mostly comprised of books I have started and better have finished by the end of the summer! Some are new starts, but a couple have been hanging around for way too long!!
5 - 10 ++ Curtis High School's Summer Reading List
About ten years ago, when I was still teaching I took home my school's summer reading list. I always taught freshmen and, while I taught mathematics, I loved to talk to my kids about what they were reading. I thought that if they had someone else to talk to about their books besides just their English teacher they could see that reading was really awesome and not just homework. Until this day, that was one of my most productive reading summers. I read every single book on the list that I hadn't already read. In many cases I read multiple books in one day! It is something I've wanted to do again.
I no longer teach, but my husband is still an English teacher at the school I used to work at. The summer reading list has been completely redrafted. I asked him to bring it home to me last week to see if there were a lot of books I hadn't read, or if it was just a couple of additions.
Here's how the numbers play out:
- Freshman reading list: I read two of the book choices and have not read nine others.
- Sophomore reading list: I read five of the book choices and have not read five others.
- Junior reading list: I read one of the book choices and have not read seven others.
- Senior reading list: I have read three of the book choices and have not read five others.
