"[We] set a school-wide reading goal last year tied to goals, not earning prizes. This year we more than doubled our goal, and met it easily. Kids are reading and staff are too! I buy my staff professional books on topics of interest, lead book studies, and highlight their reading in staff meetings. We read one book together in the first year, and this year every one of us read 4."
