Read You Like A Book
(Understanding Through Literacy)

This program is a direct off-shoot of "The Character Ed. Contest"



Freddy Maxon and Shandon O'Connor are summer time assistants and two students that love to read.

"Read You Like a Book" is a fun and interactive assembly program that makes the strong connection between Literacy and Character Education. It is a direct offshoot of the "Character Ed. Contest" as we feel Literacy and respect are very closely related. By developing a greater awareness and appreciation of the language arts, students are better equipped to more effectively communicate. This improved connection allows them to better understand each other and ultimately this breeds respect. Teamwork is an integral part of this presentation as students, teachers and staff work together. This contest stresses the importance of listening, speaking, reading and writing and the role they play in helping us to learn more about each other and the world we share. A series of trivia questions and challenges in music, literature, respect and responsibility are presented in a popular game show format. The element of competition, within a cooperative environment, captivates the interest of all age groups. This show is a great kick off for reading programs such as P.A.R.P., or as a catalyst to spark reading enthusiasm. It also serves a wonderful kick off or supplement to your schools character education program.
