  • Reading Scholars 2016/2017

    Each month students who wish to participate may read an approved book and prepare and present an oral book report to the Reading Scholar Panel.  At the end of their presentation they will have an opportunity to answer questions from the panel about the book or their thoughts about topics and issues  addressed by the book.  The best presentations, as judged by the panel, will receive a cash prize of $25, a “Reading Scholar T-Shirt” and other prizes.   Students can select their book, but it will need to be approved by a teacher, librarian, administrator, or a member of the Reading Scholar Committee.   Each month will have a particular focus.  Some teachers will have a suggested list of books to help you find an appropriate book.  We will attempt to give students as much freedom as possible in selecting a book of interest.
