Students will have the opportunity to read and respond to an engaging book this summer. This class is open to 9th grade girls and boys from all school districts but texts will be taken from Palma’s 9th Grade Required Summer Reading list. Students will learn key note-taking techniques, ways to interpret material, and gain a better understanding of what they are reading. There will be opportunities for small and large group discussions. A spiral notebook is required for this course and Palma students retaining this notebook will receive extra credit if turned into their English instructor in the fall.
