Drop Everything and Read is this Monday October 26th (1-2PM). The goal is to have everyone in the school, adults and students, drop everything and read for 20 minutes.
October 26, 2015 is the 9th anniversary of the BC Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) challenge. D.E.A.R. started as a small challenge between school libraries in 2007 and has since grown to involve many participants across the province. The simple, but powerful idea of DEAR is to promote the importance of literacy by having as many students and adults as possible read at the same time on the same day.
The goal for October 26, 2015 is to have EVERYONE in BC put down their work, turn off their computer screens, pick up a book, magazine or newspaper and read for 20 minutes.
