Drop Everything And Read

Standard

Here is a reminder to all students and teachers – tomorrow is the first day of our Drop Everything And Read week.

Don’t forget to bring a book to school with you tomorrow.

Mr. Lavin will announce at 10:30am that all teachers must stop teaching and that EVERYONE in the school must take out something to read for the rest of that class period. You may read a novel, a piece of non-fiction literature, a magazine or a newspaper. However reading a textbook is not permitted. Kindles and other forms of e-readers will be permitted. DEAR time will continue for the whole week.

Remember that teachers will ask you during the course of the day what you are reading so be prepared to give a summary and an evaluation of your reading material.

  1. For drop everything and read this week, I’ll be reading a novel by George Orwell, ” Down and Out in Paris and London”.

  2. I am reading ‘The Cay’ a book about the war on an island near Venezuela. If you can read it then you should because it is very interesting. I can’t wait to read more of it.

  3. I’m reading ‘Gone’ by Michael Grant and I really like it. There are four more in the series so I’m looking foward to reading them too.

  4. I’m reading a book called ‘Young Sherlock Holmes: Death Cloud.’
    It’s a great book for you if you like action, horror and mysteries.
    Sherlock is a 14 year old boy who is sent to his aunt’s and uncle’s house in Farnam. He and his tutor come across a dead body and trace it back to one person with a massive but clever plan to kill the British army. Sherlock, Matty(his friend), Virginia (daughter of Amyus Crowe) and Amyus Crowe (tutor) try to solve the mystery and stop the evil plans but will all go smoothly?
    I love this book and would recommend it to boys and girls.
    It is written by Andrew Lane.

  5. I am reading ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ by J. K. Rowling.
    I really enjoy reading this book because I like the novels by J. K. Rowling particularly the ‘Harry Potter’ novels.
    The ‘drop everything and read’ venture is very good but it should be more often.

  6. I read ‘Dodger’ by Terry Pratchett for DEAR week. It was disappointing and plagiarised, which was upsetting to me since Terry Pratchett is usually a very accomplished writer. Sadly his Alzheimers has stunted his writing skill. I still enjoyed DEAR week and the encouragement to read it brought. My only suggestion would be to increase the frequency and duration of DEAR weeks and the amount of time given each day.

  7. I read the book ‘Physics of the Future’ by Michio Kaku during the ‘Drop Everything and Read’ week. I found this fifteen minutes every day to be very helpful and assisted greatly in my advancing through the book. I think this was a great idea and would greatly anticipate another ‘Drop Everything and Read’ week.
