An In-Depth on Reading Break

February 10, 2020

“Take your seats!” “Close the doors!” The daily scene ensues.

Hundreds of high school students, books in hand, fight their way to their seats in a dimly lit auditorium. STAMPs dutifully check off students on attendance, teachers shuffle straggling students into their seats. We slowly get silent, we pray, and then, we read. At the heart of the school day, for 150 minutes on a full week, we read.

But where did reading time come from? Why are we reading at JD? And what does the average JD student actually do during reading anyways? Speaking Eagle staff took a deep dive on reading period, talking to faculty, admins, and students about JD’s favorite pastime.
