There are many of us who strive to promote literacy and reading year-round, but it is beneficial to set aside time to have a specific focus. I'd like to know how everyone feels about making Teen Read Week into Teen Read Month. Would that take away from the whole experience? Would it improve efforts in teen literacy? I'd like your opinion on it.
I would like to have it as a Teen Read Month. We have a fall break in October, and it is always the same week as Teen Read Week. I have to move it either before or after fall break. If it was a month, then I could promote it all month and not feel like we "missed" it.
I'm in the same boat - fall break has fallen during TRW the past 2 years so I don't fully like I can truly celebrate it. With a whole month, I would be able to do much more programming!
