The High School East Library became a literary coffee shop on this week as two classes of ninth graders explored various literary genres before choosing a book for their quarterly independent read.
Facilitated by high school librarian, Jean Marie Kliphuis and led by English teachers Griffin Tokarski (HSE ‘16) and Nicole D’Angelo, students moved around different stations and sampled a variety of young adult novels suggested by the HSE librarians.
The exercise allowed the ninth graders to preview books and decide which genres they might enjoy, and which weren’t for them.
“Reading is very personal,” said Mrs. Kliphuis. “We want students to feel comfortable exploring the library, so they find the perfect book for the assignment. An independent read should fit the student.”
On their next library visit, students will be free to browse the collection to find just the right book.
