All In! How to Unite One School With One Book

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Middle school students are notoriously fickle. Sixth graders are intimidated by the older kids, seventh graders are distracted by anything social, and *nothing* is cool enough for eighth graders. How, then, does one go about planning an activity to bring together students from all grades? What could possibly appeal to both boys and girls, be appropriate enough for those ages 11 through 14, and have enough educational value to ensure the support of administration and staff?

How about a school-wide read?

For five years, our All In! school-wide read has been the most popular club in our school district. Let us show you how one book can unite your community. We'll share videos, activities, anecdotes, and expertise so you can create a highly successful school-wide reading adventure!

Participants will:
-learn how to select a book
-leverage social media and video platforms to create interest
-create book-based team-building activities
