If you haven't seen this infographic that demonstrates the importance of and academic benefits of reading, take a look at the attachment. Simple but powerful! My library assistant learned about it through a Scholastic Book Fair webinar. In our district, we are using it to point out the importance of daily reading at home for our elementary kids and to provide rationale for why we have a daily 15-minute silent reading period for grades 7-12.
Last year, someone shared a Hunger Games event with the listserv. I was grateful, because it was a HIT at my school, too. Therefore, I'm sharing a Divergent event that I put together this year. Feel free to use, modify, or share. (Attached)
I'm doing the event the week before Spring Break since the movie comes out that following week. Students involved will receive a new "challenge notice" during seminar each day that week. Prizes and faction assignments will receive Rainbow Loom bracelets of the faction colors and/or tickets to see the movie.
