Students at South Houston High School will now have to read for 14 minutes a day, four times a week at the end of 3rd period. Every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, a bell will ring at 9:52am to let students know its time to read. Trojan TV also broadcasts a "Book Talk" of a student or teacher's favorite book. Most students like this idea.
Senior Peter Ly says, "Its a good thing because many students don't read outside of school."
Sophomore Jacob Cantu agrees with Ly's statements."I think its a wise choice because it is increasing our level of literature", says Cantu.
Many students just like to read. Many were excited about the reading initiative,like freshman Joseph Estrada. "We need to read atleast everyday,I think its nice",says Estrada.
We asked Dr.Fullen why he started the reading initiative. "There is lots to learn",says Fullen. "I want kids to learn more than my generation did. There is lots you can learn from reading.Every year knowledge doubles from reading. I want kids to realize that reading isn't boring."
Hopefully students look forward to read!
