2008 Summer Reading Club

Welcome to Mr. Mundorf’s Summer Reading Club!

This summer we will be reading The Golden Goblet and Grayson in order to assist the kids as they complete their summer reading requirement for middle school. Hopefully the SRC provides students with a medium in which they can collaboratively experience two great books, as well as give us all an opportunity to keep in touch during the summer.

The SRC takes place in multiple locations: wherever you happen to be reading the books, in the depths of your mind, on this blog (jmundorf.edublogs.org), and on our class wiki (jmundorf.wikispaces.com).  

Let’s get started…remember to post comments here on the blog as well as on the wiki.

Who has started reading The Golden Goblet? What do you think so far?

June 9, 2008

Who are the characters in The Golden Goblet? Have you noticed any conflict in the story? Explain.

Remember to update the wiki as well as comment on the blog. If you are reading Grayson feel free to update that page on the wiki. Have a great week!

Describe the setting of The Golden Goblet? Is the setting of The Golden Goblet important to the story?

Anyone reading Grayson? If so, what do you think so far?

How are The Golden Goblet and Grayson similar? How are they different?

Where did the summer go? Time sure does fly. Well? What did you think? I would be interested to read your reviews of the two books. Posting a summary might also be a good way to review the books before you start at the middle school.
