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.
- We will award book vouchers to students 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 vouchers at the school's "Reading Closet" for a reading material of their choice. Allowing students to choose what they read and how they read is critical for enjoyment of reading.
- Materials earned become the students to help them build their at-home library. Children who have books of their own enjoy reading more and read more frequency.
