Reading & Role Models

Introduce students to community role models while creating new reading opportunities

Once a month, invite a member of the community to come to school and talk about their work.  

In preparation for each visitor, work with school and town librarians to build a suggested reading list for the highlighted profession.

Ask each student to read a book about the job they are most interested in and prepare a few questions for that visitor.

Why It Works:

Encourages students to read about a topic that interests them

Can be easily structured/altered to fit your school's schedule

Gives community members opportunity to engage with kids
