This year’s “Finish Strong” challenge is based on the book How to Read Literature Like a Professor: A Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Lines by Thomas C. Foster. The author points out that much of our literature alludes to Shakespeare, the Bible, and Greek mythology, so your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read from these sources as well as to read two new-to-you books. See Mrs. Akers to sign up.
Accept the challenge and “Finish Strong.”
- Two books
- One selection from Shakespeare Stories by Leon Garfield
- Three Bible stories from One Hundred Bible Stories
- Three myths from D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths or Osborne’s Favorite Greek Myths
The first ten students to satisfactorily complete the challenge are invited to the library with one guest each for pizza on the last day of school.
