The New York Times Learning Network has just announced The Seventh Annual New York Times Summer Reading Contest.

It’s super simple — every week students just have to leave a comment saying what they found most interesting in The Times that week and why. Parents can encourage their kids to participate and teachers could do something like what I do – arrange for students to receive extra credit in their following year’s class.
