The Clarkstown North English Department is committed to inspiring and encouraging reading as a lifelong activity in our students. To that end, we ask our students to read two books over the summer and to complete two assignments.
Students can either opt to complete the double entry assignment over the summer, which is outlined below ("Summer Double Entry Journal") or the in-class assignments in the first few weeks of school ("In Class Summer Reading Assignment Descriptions for Fall"). Each set is worth 5% of first quarter grade. If a student completes the Double Entry Journal over the summer, the grade for that assignment will count for the summer reading assessment. Please note: Students may be asked to share their reading in class regardless of what assignment they choose.
