READ Design Studio and Renton Technical College
Debbie Crumb, Instructional Librarian at Renton Technical College in Renton Washington, purchased the READ® Design Studio package and used it to create READ posters featuring staff and students at the 2-year, state-supported technical college.
According to Debbie, when they started working on a reading comprehension improvement project, they were hoping to create a buzz about reading on their campus.
"We created multiple copies of over fifty different READ posters using the READ Design Studio software and graphics from the American Library Association," Debbie said. "The posters featured our own students, faculty and staff and we posted them all over campus. The students were excited to be featured on the prominently displayed posters and faculty and staff eagerly volunteered to pose for this fun project."
To show off the posters and create an even bigger buzz about reading, Debbie created this short video. Video created by Liz Falconer, RTC's Curriculum & Technology Specialist.
