Group Reading Enrichment Programs at GWCP and LMSA
Don't judge a book by its cover
Freshmen Scholars read the Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls last semester for REP. As an assignment, Scholars either redesigned the book cover or created a book cover for their own memoir.
College-style literature discussions at LMSA
It is especially exciting that so many Scholars are reading this book because we were able to have a group discussion circle about the themes of the novel. Scholars met after school in a Scholar-led discussion modeled after a college-style literature conversation. During this time, Scholars heard from each other and shared their different interpretations of the story. It was also a chance for our sophomore and freshmen Scholars to come together in an academic environment—not so common in high school. Due to the success of this meeting, we are hoping to do more in the future.
