Great Books Reading Club

    This year at BHS our insightful English teacher, Mr. Redden, has compiled an extensive list of classic books.  This list was created to inspire students to tackle the undoubtedly arduous task of reading some of these great works, and show that, though they might be tough, the satisfaction of turning that last page and closing the book is simply unmatched.  While the idea of reading these books willfully is just as enthralling, there are some incentives for students to give them the extra push they might need to pick up one of these literary works of art.  To earn recognition as a member of the Great Books Reading Club, it is required that you read at least three of the novels on the list and pass the AR quiz with a 90% or better.  To qualify for the acknowledgement at the BHS Spring Awards Ceremony you will need to complete the novels before the event.  In addition to the recognition, you will receive ten to fifteen Bomber Wings per novel, and be invited to enjoy a pizza party with your peers who complete the requirements as well.  The list has been shared with students school-wide via Google Drive.  If you do not have access to the list, or have any suggestions to add to the list, see Mr. Redden in room 102.  Books read together in your English classes will not count.
