For students entering 8th grade
Students discuss and write about the summer reading book. They read the dystopian novel The Giver by Lois Lowry. If a student has already read The Giver, they may choose from a short list of dystopian novels below. Students discuss and write about the elements of the novel, the importance of this genre of literature, and students will complete their summer reading written assignment. Students participate in a writing workshop during the second hour of each session to strengthen writing, editing, and grammar skills. The instructor has copies of The Giver that students may borrow. They must come pick up a copy before the first class on June 20th.
