High School Summer Reading

The TKA faculty and administration firmly believe that reading is an integral part of an educational institution. On a daily basis reading is promoted and assigned to expose the student to various styles of authors as we endeavor to promote a well rounded student. Outside the classroom we also would like to encourage and develop a love of reading by allowing the student more flexible choices as they engage in the reading culture.

We believe that summer reading:

  • Develops habits and skills that may increase an active imagination, a sustained attention span and the capacity for logical analysis and critical thinking.
  • Stimulates the brain in more complex ways than images on television, videos or social media.
  • Strengthens vocabulary and ultimately strengthens writing capabilities.
  • Generates interest and pleasure in reading which will enrich their literary experience.
  • Strengthens the bond between parent and child with meaningful conversations that may ensue.
