Description

http://www.wandooplanet.com For over a decade, the library has worked with us to improve service to it's community. Once again it's time to collaborate on a crisis that doesn't discriminate by geography, income, class, race or culture. The literacy crisis in America is growing and it affects everyone. Reading proficiency continues to elude our children however the solution can be found where it's always been, where librarians and teachers have always known it to be, deep within the child's own interest. Working for 14 years as a teacher, and now leading reading engagement here at Evanced I've learned firsthand what motivates children to read and learn. Extrinsic badging and corporations spending billions selling books to kids based on a buyers prior purchases are limited in their results. Children are intrinsically motivated by the things they love to do and the people who help them do it, this is where we need your help. We've created the first kid powered interest genome project, we've designed it to hone in on the relationships between what kids love to do and the books they love to read. By exploring what inspires and delights our children, we can better recommend books that engage and motivate them to become life long readers. We invite you to explore our world with your children, go to http://www.evancedkids.com/betasignup and encourage your 6 to 14 year old children to play, explore and discover the fun and wonder of a forest that thrives on their knowledge. Share your observations with us and help us grow a tool that can change everything for young readers. Voiceover by Lindsey Hill
