Need a quick activity for Read Across America Day in your secondary classroom? Looking for an easy Dr. Seuss center for station rotation? Want to incorporate more reading in your classroom? Trying to encourage students to read to learn outside of class?
This Dr. Seuss-inspired student-selected reading resource for secondary subjects prompts students to choose a course-related book or article, read silently for 10 minutes, then summarize what they learned in their own words.
Simply provide students with subject-related books and magazines in your classroom, or point them to subject-specific resources on the web, and this product by Hoop There It Is will do the rest.
This PDF includes three different versions of student guidelines, each featuring Dr. Seuss characters and the quote “The more that you READ, the more things you will KNOW. The more that you LEARN, the more PLACES you’ll go.”
Read Across America Day science-specific (pg. 2-3)
Read Across America Day non-subject-specific (pg. 4-5)
Read to Learn Every Day non-subject-specific (pg. 6-7)
Handouts can be printed front-to-back, 4 to a sheet.
This activity can be used in any grade level at any time of year. It could be adapted for any physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, algebra, geometry, statistics, history, geography, civics, world language, language arts, or elective courses to be used for class work, homework, or even extra credit.
