As summer approaches, the DuBose ELA teachers have been hard at work preparing summer reading assignments. In the past, only G.A.T.E. students were required to complete summer reading, but beginning two years ago, ALL DMS students are now required to complete summer reading. Research proves that the more a student reads, the better a student – and person – he or she will be, so why would we only require the best for our G.A.T.E. students, when reading is what is best for all learners?
Rising 7th and 8th-grade students must choose a book from the DMS Summer Reading List. Please note that, just as last year, 7th and 8th-grade students are not allowed to choose a text that is not on the DMS list for their summer reading assignment. Students have plenty of texts to choose from as the list includes over 30 selections, including high-interest and award-winning texts! However, 6th graders, our newest students at DuBose, are allowed to choose any chapter book that is more than 106 pages for their summer reading assignment. G.A.T.E. and Honors students do NOT have to complete this assignment, as they will have a separate district-required assignment, as always
Please note that there are different assignments for each grade level, so make sure you are using the correct assignment information. The assignment will be due shortly after students return to school, so students should complete the assignment anytime between now and the end of summer.
