Florida First Lady Ann Scott, along with the Florida Department of Education and the Florida Department of State, kicked off the Summer Literacy Adventure as a way to encourage students to pledge to read and visit their local public libraries this summer.
Florida students have the opportunity to participate in the Summer Literacy Adventure by visiting the Just Read, Florida! website to take the pledge. A select school with the most participating students in the Summer Literacy Adventure will be recognized during the 2013/2014 school year.
Students who take the pledge may also utilize a free online tool to search for books based on their reading ability and interests. The DOE, through MetaMetrics, offers a unique resource called “Find a Book, Florida” at Lexile Framework for Reading that uses Lexile® measures, a widely adopted reading metric that can guide a reader to an appropriate level book.
The Department of State also encourages students to read, and local public libraries throughout the state host a variety of programs during the summer to promote reading. Students and their families can learn more about summer reading programs by contacting their local public library, and information on the locations of public libraries in Florida can be found at Florida Libraries & Grants.
Access the Summer Reading List or other reading resources through the Just Read, Florida! website. We hope you will encourage your students to take the pledge today!
