Summer Reading Enrichment 

Reading is an essential component in fighting what educational researchers call the "summer slide," where "it is estimated that school summer breaks will cause the average student to lose up to one month of instruction, with disadvantaged students being disproportionately affected (Cooper, 1996)." (Link to Works Cited)

WHS is offering some reading suggestions and eBook/audio book resources for its students to access over summer to help you enrich your summer and prevent that slide backward.

Please click on the following link to see a list of suggested reading books chosen by West High Staff.
