    2018-2019 Summer Reading Information
    6th-12th Grades

    WHY SUMMER READING?
    Research shows that students who don’t engage in literacy activities throughout the summer break suffer from “the summer slide.” (Click here to see research by Scholastic about the importance of reading throughout the summer.) The purpose of summer reading in Prosper ISD is to minimize the effects of “the summer slide.” Additionally, PISD continues to refine the design of summer reading so that as students read throughout the summer break, they are both able to explore reading through choice and through exposure to thought-provoking literature.
