This lesson, from ReadWriteThink, invites students to create brochures and flyers that suggest books and genres to explore during the summer months. Rather than a teacher-centered requirement, summer reading becomes a student-driven exploration with brochures such as "Beach Books" and "I Know What You Read Last Summer: Great Suspense Novels." This lesson incorporates a Printing Press student interactive activity.
