We ask that all Stevenson students set aside time each summer to spend with books that open their minds to new ideas and communities. We hope that as they read, our students feel connected, stretched, curious, and seen. Our English and history teachers have curated collections of books for each course that introduce the foundational themes that students will explore in their upcoming studies. Students are not tested on their summer reading. Rather, we simply encourage good thinking—what did you think about what you read?—by asking students to complete a Reading Reflection for one of their selected books. The complete 2020 Summer Reading list is now available on Pirate Pages and at www.stevensonschool.org/PBSummer-Reading and students will receive an assigned form for their reflection work on their Pirate Pages once class schedules are announced.
