Summer Reading in Action

Last week, in mixed-grade groups, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders experienced all four summer reading books — The Boys in the Boat, Claudette Colvin, Red Glass, and Station Eleven — through projects that they created over the past two weeks.

A Boys in the Boat group walked through a museum featuring items key to the plot of Station Eleven, which was inspired by the book's Museum of Civilization. Afterward, the Station Eleven folks got to watch a re-enactment of the Olympic rowing race that won the United States the gold.
