    Assignment(s):  You will be reading Hostage by Willo Davis Roberts for summer reading.  During the first week of school, you will be given a task which will ask you to reflect on the novel.  This task will be connected to our first unit in our 6th grade curriculum, Overcoming Challenges.  As you are reading your novel, you should be considering how the characters and events may connect to this theme. How is the main character shaped by the challenges she faced?  It is highly recommended to take notes or mark important moments and/or quotes, as you will be able to use your notes in class!
