One of the goals of summer independent reading at St. Anne’s-Belfield School is to create for students an opportunity to make reading a rich, positive, and enjoyable experience. To achieve this goal, students must first get into – or not fall away from – the habit of reading. We believe students should be encouraged to follow the interests and passions they have developed over the course of their lives. In addition, they should be encouraged to read widely, both to explore new territory and to encounter minds and worlds they might not otherwise have sought out on their own.
