DHS Summer Reading
DHS Summer Reading 2020!
The Danvers High School learning community supports the independent reading of our students by offering a current and diverse collection of print and electronic books throughout the year and developing a list of selected titles for summer reading. As usual, the summer reading list this summer includes a list of 30 recently published young adult fiction and nonfiction titles. The list includes graphic novels, realistic fiction, fantasy, and socially relevant selections.
Most years we expect students to reflect upon the books they choose and submit some notations about their reading for use in class in the fall. Given the lack of face time we have had with our students in recent months, it did not feel like a good fit to launch another remote assignment to our students this school year. Therefore, the list of books below and the typically required note taking about what you read for fall submission to your English Language Arts teacher is not required.
Summer Reading List
The Peabody Institute Library of Danvers will have copies of each title available for pickup. For more information, please visit danverslibrary.org/reopening.
Additional Learning Resources
The Guidance Department has put together some helpful resources you can use during this time.
Social Emotional Learning
It is important to remember while we are away from school that we take time to care for ourselves and our children. We have posted a number of social emotional learning activities that we feel will help us with the anxious time that many of us are experiencing. Please consider participating in these activities as part the academic learning tasks that we have provided.
