Summer Engagement - #TigerNationReads and #TigerNationSummer
How are you staying engaged this Summer?
Irving High School believes in a culture of reading and writing across the curriculum. We expect all students and staff to read or engage in an activity over the summer. This is NOT an assigned reading or task. Choose something you want to read or explore. For more information, please see the presentation and video below. Use our links to suggested activities, teacher challenges, Flipgrid book talks, and/or upcoming reading for courses or teams for the 2021-2022 school year. Make sure you click on the link to Sora for 24/7 access to ebooks and audiobooks. Use your Irving ISD SSO to sign in.
Staff and students are encouraged to share their reading and engagement over the summer and when we return in August. Look for teacher challenges, reading incentives, and celebrations over the summer.
