Thoughtful Reader and the Ultimate Questions

February 11th, 2022

We read so that we may understand ourselves, the people around us, and the world around us. As our 5th-8th students learn in literature and composition, we read to help us answer the Ultimate Questions: Who is man? What is man’s purpose? Where is man going? What is man’s problem? What is the solution? While the answers we find as we read are important, the posture we bring to our reading, by simply asking the questions, is equally important. Thoughtful Reader allows us to carve out some time to read and ponder together. We look forward to the discussions of Kenny & the Dragon and Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy on February 25.

Students in 3rd-8th who are not participating in TR will have a study hall during that time. K-2 students will participate in classroom activities after lunch that day to celebrate their Frog and Toad reading.
