Summer Reading | 2023/2024
One of the fundamental goals of the English department of McBee High School is to establish a reading habit in the busy lives of our high school students. We want to develop reading fluency and stamina, which result in increased reading rates. This will help students develop confidence, build vocabulary, and improve writing. It is our hope that we can work together with parents to ignite and sustain the pleasure and passion of young readers as well as to instill a confidence in students as they build stamina for reading to prepare for college and careers. Because reading for an hour or two in one sitting is a basic expectation in college and is often required in any workforce-training program, we need to exercise these muscles to prepare our students to become competitive and successful in college and beyond.
