CCEF wants to build a culture that encourages reading
to help our students succeed.
How will we encourage pleasure reading with our CCS students?
There are several key strategies that can help increase pleasure reading.
- Students will earn a book voucher based on preset pleasure reading goals. Literacy-targeted rewards such as books or book vouchers have been found to be more effective in developing reading motivation than rewards that are unrelated to the activity.
- Students will exchange their book voucher at the school's "Book-a-Palooza" events for a reading material of their choice. Allowing students to choose what they read and how they read is critical for enjoyment of reading. Book-a-Palooza events occur periodically throughout the year.
- Additionally, administrators will build school-wide goals for pleasure reading to reward students and provide fun incentives to students.
