To increase student literacy, joy of reading, and positive impact reading can have on students. 


What will be done with my students

Students come to the Media Center for Monthly lessons on various topics of interest. Throughout the year some of the lessons are competitive and I would like to give Books of High Interest as rewards to those students who win the Scavenger Hunt, Breakout Room, Research competition, etc. There are certain books of high interest/popularity that students love and I think it is a fitting prize to for a student to win a book of choice to keep as his/her own.  


Benefits to my students

~Increased literacy scores
~Books in homes of low-income families
~Improving reading achievement with access to print
materials for individual students
~Increased motivation to read since student has a choice
(self- selection) in what he/she is reading
~Increased reading culture in homes
~Increased frequency, amount, and diversity of reading 


Describe the Students

Tarpon Springs Middle School is a Title I school. The majority of our students profess that they do not like to read. With the "For the JOY of Reading" initiative, I hope to provide Free books that appeal to student interests and therefore, cultivate a joy and love of reading and help to create a culture of reading at school and in the homes of our students.
