This year, Berkshire Jr/Sr High School has decided to model the summer reading after “One Book, One City” and “One Book, One School” programs already active around our country. In other words, all students in grades 7-12 will read the same book! Berkshire’s English Department collaboratively selected the nonfiction title I will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two Lives by Caitlin Alifirenka and Martin Ganda with Liz Welch for the summer 2020. This unique format can help unify the staff and students, excavate themes through discussions in the classrooms, and encourage a community of readers by forming connections with one another.
** Honors and AP classes for grades 9-12 have additional titles to read. See summer reading document specific to your course for details.
