Where have all the summer reading assignments gone?


Coming up with the perfect summer assignment doesn’t happen overnight. In order to move in the right direction administrators might think to keep schools open during the summer and possibly release the summer reading lists earlier on in the year, according to Grief.

Keeping schools open during the summertime allows for students to get personal help from librarians that see them throughout the school year. While community librarians can give suggestions based on information given to students, a school librarian can offer a more personalized recommendation.

All and all while summer reading assignments are being edited to reflect the changing times, it’s clear to say in cases where one format works for some it may not work for others. Summer is a critical point for students, especially for students needing more help when learning new concepts.
