EWG Junior High School
All students entering 7th and 8th grade are required to select one novel from the EWG JHS Summer Reading List to read over the summer.
All students entering 7th and 8th grade are required to select one novel from the EWG Junior High Summer Reading List to read over the summer. The list can be found on the reverse/bottom of this sheet and on the junior high website. All of the novels are available in ebook format through the EWG catalog and the Sora app. Students will complete the novel prior to the start of school and be prepared to engage in meaningful discussion upon their return. Though we appreciate that many students like to start their assignments right away, we suggest that students read the novel later in the summer, so that the details of the book are fresh in their mind during the first few weeks of school.
Students should review the questions on the graphic organizer prior to starting their novel. While they read, they should record thoughts and key facts on the organizer. The graphic organizer will help them with a script for their assignment.
Assignment - Each student will record their audio book report of their book selection on our Summer Reading Flipgid which can be accessed here.
Bonus - There are many great books on the book list. If students read 3 novels and complete 3 graphic organizers, they will receive a free admission to a Student Council event of their choice during the year! Please note these are ALL Middle School Book Award selections if you are completing journals for next year’s book battle (use the graphic organizer as your notes)!
Enjoy your vacation and happy reading!
Please note: Not all books are appropriate for all readers; ALL the selections come in ebook form through the SORA app.
