History Brigade and Book Club members met regularly throughout the fall to organize and create a school-wide “Genre Room” and scavenger hunt day, as well as other activities to promote reading during History/Teen Read Week in November. The club members created 5 Genre Rooms: Science Fiction, Survival, Mythology, Fantasy, and Pop Culture. Students in grades 7-12 traveled to these Genre Rooms where they participated in games and activities and were introduced to literature from those genres. The activity culminated with a scavenger hunt among grade levels, requiring students to work in groups to answer questions and find clues throughout the school relating to the genres. Additional contests and activities for grades 7-12 included the “Unplugged Challenge”– a challenge to put down devices and technology and read– getting “Caught Reading,” and dressing up as people from history or literature. Students earned tickets for participating which were then entered into a prize drawing.
