Summer Reading Boot Camp: "Sample Daily Schedule"

Summer Reading Boot Camp Philosophy: Awaken or reawaken the desire for learning, let the light of wisdom and reason shine in. Solemnity and literacy are distant visions for some teachers on day one, yet the seed is planted rigorously, feed constantly, and blossoms over the 20 plus days.
 
KEEPING STUDENTS BUSY WITH FAST PACED LITERACY ACTIVITIES ALL DAY! 

Summer Reading and Its Effect on Reading Achievement!
Jumping 40% points in Mean Reading Scores in 20 Days!
27% on Day ONE, 73% on Day Twenty!
Reading Boot Camp is a free open source reading intervention program designed to turn around an entire school in just 20 days! Teaching every child in your school to read in twenty days is not only radical but saves thousands in program cost. Turning the reading establishment on its head and saving a lost generation is a radical idea. Spending education budgets on great literature for students, instead of reading software, basal readers, reading intervention programs, and teacher in-service training is a radical idea. Insuring that all students have a real future is just a pipe dream if we stay on this path of chasing reading rainbows. Teaching ten years in high-poverty schools, with over 85% of the students at risk, has taught me we have lost our way and the establishment is broken. We buy into every program that comes down the pike promising success, yet here we are failing our most needy students. Putting great literature, poetry, and books in children’s hands is the foundation of Reading Boot Camp, not predigested workbooks, endless teacher-made photo copies, and needless busy work.  Reading Boot Camp is back to basics with a sledge hammer to the outsider. Students find it rewarding and fantastic!
