Our “Finish Strong” reading challenge this spring is based (again) on Thomas C. Foster’s book How to Read Literature Like a Professor. Foster claims that to truly understand and appreciate Western literature, the reader needs an understanding of Shakespeare, the Bible, and Greek/Roman mythology.
So, the reading challenge for this April and May includes reading from these sources as well as four short selections from the following:
- One true animal story from Animals You will Never Forget (Reader’s Digest)
- One sci-fi short story by Isaac Asimov or Ray Bradbury
- One Sherlock Holmes mystery
- One suspense or horror story by Edgar Allen Poe
See Mrs. Akers to sign up. We will celebrate during lunch on the last day of school, Wednesday, May 20th.
Accept the challenge and Finish Strong.
