Book Assignments: Getting a Head Start in English

By Steven Darby - February 5, 2024

In English class, reading assignments often come with additional responsibilities to enhance understanding and engagement with the material. One effective approach is to organize and print a character list for the student to use as a bookmark.

Encourage your child to add character relationships to this list as they read, helping them keep track of the story's intricacies. Additionally, understanding themes, motifs, and symbols in literature can provide a richer reading experience.

We suggest organizing, printing, and discussing these literary aspects with your child to give them a deeper insight into metaphorical and symbolic meanings within the text. When Socratic Seminars are on the horizon, help your child prepare by writing out questions for discussion in class. Lastly, emphasize the importance of minimizing distractions, such as putting away the phone while reading, to fully immerse themselves in the world of literature and extract its full meaning.
