PROJECT: READ A BOOK - BUILD A LIBRARY (RBBL)
READ A BOOK - BUILD A LIBRARY IS A PROJECT BASED LEARNING PROGRAM WHICH INTRODUCES STUDENTS TO A REAL LIFE PROBLEM AND ALLOWS THEM TO BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION.
3 WAYS TO PARTICIPATE:
1. Be a SPONSOR of a suitcase. (Fund a suitcase filled with supplies)
2. Be a RECIPIENT of a suitcase. (Submit your current need of supplies to MRC)
3. Be a Volunteer READER. (Teaching youth the importance of helping others)
Destination 1 - The Readers. The suitcase is delivered to a local classroom or youth group. Item's in the suitcase will be for the student readers and the designated charitable organization. The first set of items are for the students, which includes reading logs, project ideas, and real life facts about the designated organization that will receive the donation of supplies. The instructor encourages students to read and complete their reading logs within a 9 week grading period time frame. The remaining items are materials and supplies to be donated to charity so students may see exactly how they are helping someone in need.
Destination 2 - Someone in need. Upon completion of student reading logs, students donate the suitcase to the designated charity that services children who are in need of the reading material/school supplies. The suitcase is packed with items to be donated to charity.
Destination 3 - The office to be repacked. Suitcase is returned to the McFadden Resource Center where it is repacked to be made ready to continue the journey of literacy and community service.
