Dorchester Two’s GATE Summer Reading List Summer 2014
 
Reading is an essential skill for all academic work, and the more students read, the better readers they become!  Wide recreational reading can extend vocabulary, increase comprehension, and stimulate higher order thinking.  We want the best learning experiences for our children in Dorchester Two!
 
Every student participating in Dorchester Two’s Gifted & Talented Education (GATE) program has been asked to read the following novels this summer:
 
  • Rising 4th grade GATE students – Choice of one of the following:
    • The Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare
    • Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell
    • Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks
  • Rising 5th grade GATE students – Shades of Gray by Carolyn Reeder
  • Rising 6th grade GATE students – The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen
  • Rising 7th grade GATE students – The Giver by Lois Lowry
  • Rising 8th grade Honors/CP English I students – Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • Rising 8th grade Advanced/GATE Literature – Nothing but the Truth by Avi
 
These novels are aligned with the concepts and themes addressed throughout the year in the GATE ELA classes; therefore students will have multiple opportunities to showcase and connect their new learning with their already present knowledge. 
 
Thank you for your assistance in providing books for our students and assisting us in encouraging a life-long love of reading!  Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Anita Ruff at 843-821-3960.  Have a great summer!
