Summer 2013 Reading
Miami-Dade County Public Schools recognizes the importance of ensuring that students continue to strengthen reading skills and develop a passion for reading beyond the time they spend in school. Cultivating pleasurable reading helps build vocabulary and enriches students’ knowledge base. In addition, increased independent summer reading of both fiction and non-fiction books helps prepare students to be successful in meeting more rigorous academic standards as schools transition to Common Core State Standards.
