Get Caught Reading Reading Enrichment www.getcaughtreading.orgWhat is Get Caught Reading? A nationwide campaign to remind people of allages how much fun it is to read. Launched in 1999 and supported by theAssociation of American Publishers, GCR encourages you to order our freeposters, read our newsletters, download our free videos, and join the thousandsof celebrities, booksellers, teachers and librarians who continue to embrace thiscampaign across the country.In our School: We will set aside 30 minutes in the day for students to read.Students will also be encouraged to visit the media center for leisure reading timewhen they have completed class work. Media specialists and teachers will takepictures of students “caught reading”. Each week a student will be chosen fromthe pictures to be the model child of the effort and receive a free ice cream atlunch.Posters like these will be placed around the school that students will identify with.A problem that we have seen is that students view reading as “uncool” so we aretrying to make it as relatable and cool as possible. Some of their favoritecharacters will model what it’s like to be caught reading. The pictures that wecapture in the school will be displayed along side the posters.Once a month we will have a “Get Caught Reading with your Parent” eventwhere students and their parents will come after school and read in the mediacenter together. It will be themed and there will be food and refreshments. Eachgroup will get their picture taken while reading and be able to take it home as akeepsake.
