The school year is ending for most children here in America, and that means we also often see the imposition of schoolwork on students’ free time over the summer months.
Here is a quick collection of six articles and blog posts on teacher-assigned summer reading:
- Rethinking summer reading
- On assigned summer reading
- Stop killing the magic of books with required summer reading
- Why do we give students summer assignments? Seriously, WHY?
- Trust me, assigning summer readings is totally pointless
- How to stop killing the love of reading
Read them or don’t… It’s summer. Read what you want!
