Summer Reading Club 2

Course Description


Single-semester course. The WTMA Summer Reading Club is designed to keep logic-stage students engaged in reading and discussion over the summer break. Students will come together with their instructor once a week to talk about that week’s reading.  

This course is meant to foster a student’s love of reading. There are no formal written assignments. Students who participate in all 8 sessions will receive a WTMA Summer Reading Club t-shirt.  Participation credit is earned by attending the live class or by watching the recording of a class and then completing a discussion board response based on a prompt given by the instructor.
