My Students

As a Florida Media Specialist I have many students who love to read, but I have many more who don't. Remember that old saying, "Reading is Fundamental." Well, we are trying to put the FUN back into Fundamental by challenging our students to read the 15 Florida Teen Reads books by April 1, 2016.

We are a large urban high school in South Florida where 65% of our students are on free or reduced lunch.

Many of my students use our Media Center as their place to study, connect with friends and get access to the Internet as many do not have access at home. Our students represent many different ethnic backgrounds and cultures and have come to us from over 25 different countries.

My Project

We are promoting the Battle of the Books, a reading motivation program that encourages teens to read all 15 of the Florida Teen Read books for 2015-2016. In April, school teams will compete in a regional Battle for school pride and reading supremacy. We want to encourage participation by making the books accessible and fun and believe using Kindle tablets will achieve both. As this is our first year participating, we hope this will become an annual event and the tablets will be available for students to check out, just like a book.

By adding Kindle Tablets to our inventory of technology, we will be providing additional access to hundreds of books that we don't have room to display.

It will also give us access to thousands of classic and public domain books that we could not afford to purchase. We hope that this will be the start of a Kindle tablet program that will allow students to check out a tablet just like they check out a book today.
