Black Eyed Peas and Ocoee Middle School Keep Kids Reading

The Black Eyed Peas’ flash mob for Oprah inspired this fantastic reading video by the staff and students at Ocoee Middle School in Florida.  Enjoy it, and be sure to share it with your students and colleagues:

They had a little professional help, but what a great idea! Leave a comment if you know of similar videos promoting reading and I’ll update this post by embedding them below.

    After the presentation of the song to the student body, what has been the response from the kids in relation to the number of books that have been signed out from the library and has the school tracked how much the volume of reading has increased with the student body?
