Creek Reads! TCMS Summer Reading
All Tates Creek Middle School students are encouraged to read over the summer. Our Anchors, Voyagers, Navigators, Mariners, Explorers, and Odyssey and students should read at least two books over the summer and fill out an IB MYP Learner Profile One-Pager for each book. The IB learner profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. We believe these qualities can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national, and global communities. We invite students to explore these attributes through their summer reading.
Upon our return to school, students who have completed their summer reading one-pagers will be invited to our summer reading party and book discussion group. This summer, our recommended summer reading list is the Kentucky Bluegrass Award Master List for 2019-20. Below you will find the suggested reading list, one pager, and copies of the Learner Profile.
TCMS Gifted and Talented Summer Reading
Gifted and talented students may choose to participate in the school-wide IB MYP summer reading assignment, but it is not required as they have their own mandatory assignment.
Remember: Kids are maturing at different rates. Not every book is appropriate for every child at every age. When choosing a book, use wisdom -- do not read a book that is inappropriate for you or your family. When choosing and reading a book, talk to your parents about what you are reading. Read together with your parent.-- Preddy, Leslie. Social Readers: Promoting Reading in the 21st Century. Libraries Unlimited, 2010.
High School Summer Reading
Bryan Station High School
The BSHS Freshman Academy teachers will deliver summer reading books and assignments to students in May and discuss the Defender 101 Summer Program. Students receive grades in their English and Freshman Seminar classes for successful completion of their summer reading work both on the summer reading assignment, and during the Summer Reading Academy Learning Event on Thursday, August 22nd. The book is checked out to the student through the FCPS library system, so students are fined if they do not return the books. Information about summer reading can be found on the BSHS homepage beginning at the end of May.
Dunbar High School
Frederick Douglass High School
Incoming 9th Graders at Frederick Douglass HS will be asked to read one of the two following books: Dear Martin, by Nic Stone OR Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand. These reads will be incorporated for the entire Freshman Academy, so are not dependent on English class assignment. Students may choose which title to read.
