•The ‘Society of Literary Scholars’ program is dear to my heart. It is a true labor of love that I have been developing for years!
•It is a school and home-based reading program. A method of immersing children in a culture of literacy by providing them with quality books at all times. A ‘Society’ is built around three main components that all students are exposed to, and interact with, throughout a school year. (1st Books of the Month/Monthly Meetings, 2nd The First Readers Club, and 3rd Bi-Annual Society Challenges)
During a traditional school year, all students are provided with opportunities to attend component 1, otherwise known as, ‘Monthly Meetings of the Society Scholars.’
•Why I encourage personalized invitations - Personalized invitations to the ‘Monthly Meetings’ can help bring a sense of pride and ownership to the students as they are invited to attend ‘Society Meetings.’
•Remember though, the goal of ‘The Society of Literary Scholars’ is not necessarily that every child will love reading but rather that every child will make reading progress in a nurtured and positive way.
