Commit to Curiosity

This summer we are taking a different approach to summer reading at The Oakridge School by combining suggested reading with options for other activities. These include ways to delve into art, culture, science, sports, literature, service and technology.  We are calling this platform: Commit to Curiosity. I am still a huge proponent of required reading for the summer; (with lots of choices), but for now Oakridge has opted for suggested reads.  Lower and middle school students are excited about summer book bingo  – possibly because of the raffle and gift cards on the line.  (I am excited about AISL Bingo!)

I think the key to success will be promotion, promotion, promotion. We’re marketing the guide with a student created commercial, and social media combined with our school website will hopefully keep the momentum going.  The students also have an option to keep up with their activities in a “passport” book. Links to the Bingo Boards are in the platform under Literature. 

We are almost there!

Happy Summer!
