Westford Academy Summer Reading

WELCOME TO THE NEW WESTFORD ACADEMY SUMMER READING PROGRAM!

What has NOT changed:

  • All Westford Academy students are expected to read at least one book over the summer.
  • Honors students are expected to read an additional book (assigned by grade level).
  • Students should complete the book(s) before school begins (August 27, 2019) and be prepared for an assessment.

What HAS changed:

  • Students will select a work from a list (click on the link for the appropriate grade, then click on the titles for further information).
  • Students will be expected to discuss their work with other classmates who have read that work.

Goals/Purposes:

  • To maintain the skills of reading through the summer months
  • To provide students with choice in what they read
  • To encourage a habit of reading
  • To help students see books as mirrors (reflections of themselves) and/or windows (an entry into other views)
