25 Book Goal

In 8th grade, independent reading is very important.  Students are expected to read independently at home and during the day at school are are expected to always have an independent reading book with them.  The goal is 25 books .  This is a lofty goal, but many students can achieve this.  Students must reach a book goal of 15 books for the year .  Their book lists must be updated at all times and will be graded monthly.  Students are also required to write brief book plugs for every book they finish.  Goodreads is the preferred place for posting book plugs online, but if students are unable to do this, they can submit a paper copy of their book plug.  Please click below for information on great books to read as well as a copy of the tracking form.


Students who have achieved the 25 book goal this year.  Bravo!
