Ah, Summer Reading...

Students are being given summer reading, including the Brontes. Surprising, isn't it? Well, it is even less surprising for me since I've had not only those internet searches for character sketches of characters from the novels poking around the blog, but on certain messageboards people have been bold enough to ask for chapter by chapter summaries, and quotes. The level of laziness involved in going online, and through all the trouble of posting such a message and waiting for a reply... instead of simply opening the book and looking for quotation marks is utterly mind-boggling.

But, here's an article about why teachers are bothering with at least trying to get their students to read over the summer.
