What is the Oasis Reading Café?

 

Our Media Center has an exciting reading project which began in September of 2003.  Student and teachers meet for lunchtime book discussions in the Oasis Reading Café.  This room is located in the Media Center and is outfitted with cozy furniture, a sink, a microwave and a refrigerator.

 

How does it work?

 

Students contact the sponsoring staff member to sign up for the discussion and get a copy of the book. Large posters of the teacher leader with the book can be found on the campus. On the day of the discussions, students meet to enjoy free pizza and drinks with their book discussion leader. This activity has proven to be a big hit with the teachers and students involved.
