Director of ELA

Summer is a time for relaxation, spending time with family, and renewing friendships. It is also a time for our students to reflect on the lessons learned throughout the school year and to renew their commitment to be lifelong learners. As each student in Levittown has made individual strides throughout the school year, it is imperative that the students remain on this learning path, especially during the summer months. Current research shows that the average student will lose approximately one month of instruction during the summer break. To avoid this loss, it is imperative that students read over the summer to maintain comprehension and vocabulary skills, as well as to strengthen their ability to analyze information and think critically.

Students entering grades 5-8 have an opportunity to creatively engage with the dynamic websites found on the home pages for each school, as well as on the links at the right of this page. It is mandatory for all students to read the book assigned to their grade level as this book will become the anchor text for the fall and will be used for lessons and activities when the students return to school on September 4, 2019.

Each student entering grades 5-12 is expected to read the book assigned to him/her. The assigned book list is as follows:

  • Entering Grade 5: Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein
  • Entering Grades 6, 7, 8: Restart by Gordon Korman
  • Entering Grade 9: Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  • Entering Grade 10: Refugee by Allan Gratz
  • Entering Grade 10 Pre AP: Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell
  • Entering Grade 11: A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah
  • Entering Grade 12:
    • Monsters and Heroes in Literature course: Monsters: A Bedford Spotlight Reader by Andrew J. Hoffman
    • The College Writer course: When I Was Your Age-Original Stories about Growing Up edited by Amy Ehrlich

**Students entering grade 5 are invited to explore the interactive website

**Students entering grades 6, 7 ,8 are invited to explore the interactive website

**Students entering grades 9, 10, 11 are invited to complete the Double Entry Journal sheet

Students enrolled in AP Capstone, AP Language, AP Literature, or the new 12th Grade classes have specific books to read with an alternate assignment. Please click on the links to the right to access these assignments.
