Abstract: For this senior project, I helped with organizing the Native American Heritage Read-In day at Pembroke Elementary School. Due to the large population of American Indian students at this local school, we had volunteers from the university come to the elementary school and read books relating to Native American culture to the students. We also had books to donate to every student in the elementary school. I had to sort these books and put them into grade-appropriate classroom sets for volunteers to bring with them to give to the students. Research has shown that students with access to literature at home have a higher success rate in school, and typically stay in school longer than those students who have less access to books. The purpose of this project was to promote literacy and multicultural understanding and literacy in the local community.
