Preventing the summer slide

City school district looks to promote summer reading program to keep kids learning


Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — There are a number of different projects a student can do for credit. Some of them include a reading response log, which is a personal reflection for each chapter. They can create a PowerPoint presentation, timeline or brochure on the book, as well as a collage or poem. They can also write a prequel or sequel to the book, or create an editorial cartoon or a diorama.

Murray said while there is a list of suggested books for students, readers don’t have to stick to the list. But, high school students enrolled in honors English or advanced placement classes cannot use books that are required reading for the summer program. They can, however, read additional books to earn summer reading credit.
