Reading Challenge

(Category: Reading)
Reading Challenge is a short-term reading intervention, developed by a JCSP Coordinator. Students are challenged to read a piece of reading material for six weeks. Parental involvement is an element of this intervention. Reading Challenge motivates students to read and review books; they also track their reading and are awarded for successfully meeting the reading challenge. The following support materials can be provided to schools:
- “Reading Challenge” teacher guidelines
- “Reading Challenge” booklet—Student book review
- “Reading Challenge” student achievement certificate
- “Reading Challenge” wall posters (A3)


• Please enclose in your evaluation a detailed description of the activities undertaken in the running of the initiative along with any relevant photographs of the activities undertaken (no direct student photos please).
• The evaluation should be submitted online at www.jcsp.ie.
