New York Is Reading Country: Manual. 1992 New York State Summer Reading Program.
Sivulich, Sandra Stroner; Enos, Randall
The summer reading program of the New York State Library is intended to assist youth in increasing their intellectual base by broadening their backgrounds through reading during the summer. The 1992 "New York is Reading Country" theme is intended to add a few more layers to what students already know about the state and to be helpful in social studies curricula on New York. A section on New York trivia provides facts about the state as potential program themes along with a list of noted state citizens. Strategies and tips are given for the summer program in the following areas: (1) promotion and publicity; (2) decoration; (3) structuring the program and sharing the books; (4) media use; (5) games and handouts; (6) folktales; (7) programs to offer; (8) directory of places to visit; (9) shopping list of materials; (10) credits to contributors; (11) a 32-item bibliography of resources used in creating the program; and (12) a program evaluation form. The folklore section contains a 47-item bibliography of folktales and commentaries. (SLD)
