Flipped!: Want to Get Teens Excited about Summer Reading? Just Add Video
Wooten, Jennifer
School Library Journal, v55 n5 p38-40 May 2009
Fully 57 percent of youth online watch videos, according to a Pew Internet & American Life study. And more and more are creating and sharing clips of their own making. With online engagement such an integral part of their world, Washington state's King County Library System (KCLS) decided to meet kids on their own turf by launching Read.Flip.Win. (RFW), a video component of its summer reading program for teens. Summer reading initiatives are core services at many public libraries and KCLS is no exception. "Read Three, Get One Free" in which teens write three reviews and receive a complimentary book, has been a successful program of the KCLS. But in 2008, KCLS decided to ramp things up with Read.Flip.Win. The author talks about Read.Flip.Win and how KCLS created this new program from scratch.
