Upper School Summer Reading and Math Assignments Announced
Students select a book to read (or listen to via audiobooks) and then complete an assignment of their choosing. The book must be at least 100 pages or the equivalent via an audiobook and fit in the theme chosen for the school year. The list of possible assignments contains both traditional and nontraditional choices.
Students can demonstrate what they have learned through writing, fine art, film, music, diagrams and a number of other mediums. The key is for each student to select an assignment that best reflects their unique learning style, and then demonstrate what they have learned.The summer reading program reflects Lawrence School's belief in student-choice, higher-order thinking, differentiated instruction, and authentic assessment.
Here are the assignment options for the 2017 Summer Reading Project:
