LEADERS + LITERACY = POWER.
Are you looking for a "Back to School" activity that gets students thinking about the power of literature? Do you want to set the stage for a year of reading? Then give this activity a try! Students will begin by reading quotes from successful leaders about reading. Students will then use the internet to research books that inspired each one of the leaders discussed. Finally, students will write about literature interests, reading habits, past experiences and preferred reading conditions by completing a reading profile survey. All three activities can easily be completed in one class period. Use it on the first day of school or the first day of a new semester. PERFECT FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS!
The packet contains the following:
+ an appealing 14-slide PowerPoint, geared towards middle/high school students
+ a 2-page internet research/ written reflections handout
+ a 3-page Student Reading Profile Survey
