Test Scores Increase With Summer Reading Book Fair
By Dr. Richard L. Allington and Dr. Anne McGill-Franzen, professors at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN
Scholastic Summer Challenge For students embarking on summer break, the word "slide" brings to mind hours of fun on a playground or at a water park. The "summer slide" that teachers have come to know has a less sunny side, referring instead to students' loss in reading achievement after taking a summer vacation from reading.

Online Fair Used to Help Tornado-Ravaged School
Online Fair Extension When the East Middle School library in Joplin, Mo., was destroyed by a tornado last May, West View Middle School and the surrounding community of Morristown, Tenn., came to the rescue, purchasing 160 books for Joplin's makeshift library in a book drive held last October.

"While making preparations for our Book Fair, I discovered teachers could create a wish list of books they wanted as part of our Online Book Fair. I realized it would be a perfect way for members of our community to donate book purchases to East Middle," said librarian Kathy Jones. Keep Reading >>
