Washington Township Public SchoolsMiddle Level ELA2021 Summer Reading AssignmentGrades 6, 7, & 8Summer Reading Assignment - Beautiful Words(adapted from this time to read over the summer. While you are only asked to read one book, you are encouraged todevour more!As you read your self-selected book, part of your assignment is to gather a collection of sentences, lines,and/or short excerpts that pop out to you. Let’s call them “Beautiful Words”. Beautiful doesn’t have to meanpretty or positive (as many of you are thinking).Beautiful words are meaningful or powerful. Sentences or short phrases that make you thinkdeeply or reveal hidden details about the story, conflict, or characters.Be careful! You are not looking just for similes or metaphors. You can certainly choose them, but really try tofocus on the author’s choice of words and phrases.Example:The character in your book could be struggling with a conflict they are having with their cousin. Maybe theycan’t agree on who should take the blame for something terrible that happened. As you read, look for how the author is describing their thoughts, images, reactions, etc. Are there any words or sentences that make you stop for a second and think deeply? Did the author paint a vivid image with certain words? Was there a section that really made you feel you learned something new that you never realized?These are BEAUTIFUL WORDS!Note: We are not looking for single words we are looking for phrases, sentences, lines oftext. Additional Examples: if your book is about a terrible natural disaster, you can find the power in certainsentences.describing the destruction or fear; if your book is about war, you can find the beauty in certainphrases describing the intensity of the situation.The point is author’s weave words that create beauty, no matter what they are writing about.After reading and collecting beautiful words, you are ready to complete the summer reading assignment!The assignment is due the first week of school. It will count as a supportive grade.If needed, you can request a conference with your ELA teacher prior to turning in your work.
