NISD Middle School Summer Reading
Dear Northwest Middle School Parents/ Guardians,
In an effort to keep our NISD students engaged in literacy throughout the summer, students are expected to read one or more novels from the following district approved grade level lists.
This novel should be read in its entirety before school starts. This will ensure that the student is well- prepared to participate in classroom discussions over their chosen book, and is ready to begin the year with the rigor and challenges of our district curriculum.
In order to provide our students more choice within a wider variety of high interest text, there will be NO distinction between which books are designated Applied ELA, On-Level, Pre-AP, or GT for middle school summer reading. Our main purpose for summer reading is for our students to read a book of their choice that they are interested in to continue to foster the love of reading, strengthen reading fluency and stamina, and build upon the idea that reading is important all year round.
