2019 Faith Summer Reading Challenge

School will be over soon, but learning never ends. To keep you reading and learning, we introduce the Read Harder challenge.

Reasons to read during the summer:

  1. It helps prevent the “summer slide” - the unintentional loss of academic progress during the summer months.
  2. You have more time to read things you don’t get around to during the school year.
  3. It gives you a chance to read books recommended by your teachers and peers.
  4. It promotes reading as a habit connected to lifelong learning.
  5. It develops your vocabulary, improves critical thinking and writing skills, and builds empathy and understanding.

High school summer reading program:

  • All students attending high school in 2019-2020 should read at least three books over the summer.
    • Books should be logged on the second page.
    • During first quarter, you will be doing activities in your English class related to the books you read.
  • If you want a challenge, you can read books from the categories on the grid on the second page.
    • Record books in the appropriate boxes.
    • You may read and log books that fit two categories.
    • Students who complete an entire row, column, or diagonal will get to spin for a reward when school starts.
    • Students able to fill the entire grid will get a bonus reward and will get to sign the Read Harder trophy!
  • If you want to listen to audiobooks, YA Sync gives away two free audiobooks each week all summer long.
  • For your book-borrowing convenience, the Faith library will be open 3 June and 24 June from 9:30-11:30.
  • AP Language and AP Literature will have their own reading requirements specified by teachers.
