  • 13. Proclamation
    • * Whereas, the ability to read and process information is a basic survival skill in our global information society; and
    • * Whereas, the reading proficiency of teens has remained stagnant over the last thirty years; and
    • * Whereas, the number of students who can read but choose not to do so is increasing; and
    • * Whereas, the most effective way to improve reading skills is to read regularly and often; and
    • * Whereas, too few teens think reading is a valuable tool for enjoyment and relaxation as well as for schoolwork; and
    • * Whereas, regular daily reading for the fun of it creates the reading habit for life; and
    • * Whereas, parents, teachers, librarians, and all concerned adults can serve as role models by reading for fun themselves;
    • * Therefore, be it resolved that I (name, title of official) proclaim October 12-18, 2008, Teen Read Week(TM) in (name of city, state) and encourage teens to read for the fun of it.
