Read O’ Rama is an annual school-wide reading event at the Ninth Grade School. Students and teachers select a book from a list, read it, and come prepared to discuss it on the day of Read O’ Rama.
Roughly 15 current and popular young adult novels are offered as choices. Titles cover a variety of interests including the sci-fi best seller, Divergent, John Green’s celebrated tearjerker, The Fault in Our Stars, to Nicholas Sparks latest romance, Safe Haven.
For each book, a teacher facilitates the discussion with students. Teachers enjoy reading a good book and interacting with students outside of the classroom. In return, students get to see their teachers in a different light as they bond over the enjoyment of a good read.
This year we had 13 groups with almost 60 students in attendance. We had a lot of food, fun, and great discussion!
