About the 5 Book Dive
The 5 Book Dive is an Austin ISD summer reading program created in 2016 by Superintendent Dr. Paul Cruz. The purpose of the program is to encourage all students to read at least five self-selected books over the summer. Summer is a great time for students to relax with a book (or magazine, or comic, or whatever) and experience the pleasure of reading just for fun! And research has shown that reading just five books can protect students from a drop in reading levels known as the "summer slide", which disproportionately affects lower-income students (Alexander, Entwisle, & Olson, 2007; Kim, 2004).
These are this year's recommended titles for high school students.
