LIBRARY • TULSA READS MILLIONS



Tulsa Reads Millions logoTulsa Reads Millions

Tulsa Reads Millions is a district-wide reading initiative designed to promote literacy by challenging every member of our Tulsa Public Schools community to read at least a million words each year. Research indicates that the amount of reading students do directly impacts their reading achievement. The more students read, the better readers they become. In fact, the practice of reading helps people of all ages to improve their reading skills and become more knowledgeable.
(See Variation in Amount of Independent Reading)

Tulsa Reads Millions will involve more than just TPS students and staff. For students to reach their million word goal, they will need to spend time reading both at school and at home. They will need the help of parents, guardians, family members and the entire Tulsa community, encouraging them to read, read, read. To help students achieve their goal of reading a million words, TPS is developing partnerships with a variety of community-based organizations and literacy programs.

Program objectives include the following:

  • To increase academic achievement of all students
  • To help students develop the habits of good reading
  • To create excitement about reading and learning every day
  • To support students in becoming proficient readers
