Readers Are Leaders:
Readers are Leaders is a fun, competitive reading trivia program open to Grade 5, 6 and 7 students in CISVA schools. Groups of students are responsible for reading six novels chosen by Librarians in the CISVA. The six books are selected from the 12 fiction finalists for the Canadian Red Cedar Award. Students begin reading the books in December and make notes and create questions related to the novels. From January to March students meet once a week to discuss the novels they have read, exchange study questions and have practice competitions based on the questions they created.
An in school competition will be held in mid-March to determine which students will advance to the Regional competition. Regional competitions for the winning team from each school will be held in early April. The final competition will be held in late April.
