Culture of Reading: The video shows a campus that embraces a concept of Independant Reading. This allows the student to be captivated by their book of choice and have a leisure read in the classrooom for a 30 minutes. The teacher then engages the students with questions to build upon a  with the assigned book to facilitate concepts in literature.

I love that the school sets time aside for students to read individually. I feel this school really understands the importance of reading. I like the one on one meetings that help encourage reading. The book club idea is awesome and I wish it was incorporated into every class some way.

I think this is an awesome school, and reading is something that you can for sure learn to love because you have invested time and emotion into each book that you start so therefore most want to finish it to see how it ends up. Encouragement of students reading is something they can carry on through out their whole life, and they will make it a habit like watching TV. The principals book club is an awesome group because all the students seemed to really enjoy what they were reading and talk about it with their peers as well as the principal, and it allows the principal to see how much these students are truly impacted by the books.

I love the way they gave students choices about what they wanted to read and encouraged them. The students seem to be actively in m engaged in the books they liked most.

I loved the fact that the teacher gave the students 30 minutes each day to read,this will help with the student to decide if they actually like reading some will not enjoy reading but others will learn to enjoy and find out how fun reading actually is,also it will increase their vocabulary.The second most enjoyable part for me was the principle set up a book club in his office this showed that he cared for the students,getting involved in a plus .I wish more principles would show more interest in the student.I enjoyed this video.
