Summary

This is the ninth report describing notable reading projects funded under Title II of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Projects combining Title II reading projects with a give-away book program in Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New Jersey are described. Although Title II funds cannot be used to provide books to give away, funds from federal sources, such as ESEA Title I and Model Cities, and from civic groups, foundations, alumni organizations, and business and industry are being utilized to buy books. The idea of giving books to children as a means of motivating them to read is derived from Reading Is FUN-damental (RIF), a national program funded by a private foundation and sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution. The program is based on the theory that if children are able to choose books from a wide and interesting selection to keep for their very own, they might be put on the road to addictive reading. Reports on Title II reading projects which have been combined with a give-away program show a sharp increase in the use of instructional materials and school media centers. Teachers and media specialists also note improvement in reading tastes as the projects continue. (Author/TO)
