Rise is a collection of student events or special projects that highlight student life at ASSETS Academy.
ASSETS Academy ELA Teachers started the school year with the campus-wide reading initiative. For several days, every ELA classroom transformed into a Starbooks Café (Starbucks themed book tasting) with each student having an opportunity to preview “taste” the most current young adult novels and non-fiction books as well as talk to their classmates about their reading experience. Students were to read the book summaries to select the top 3 books that they were interested in reading. The next day students received one of the 3 books that they have chosen and began their independent reading. Students start each English class reading independently for 10 minutes. We anticipate that each student will have read at least 3 novels by the end of the year.
