What is the CCRSB Teen Reader’s Choice Award?
Four months, ten books, one winner: CCRSB’s annual Teen Reader’s Choice Award is a literary program designed for young-adult readers. This is the seventh year for our popular program that fosters the love of pleasure reading and encourages meaningful conversation about the top ten books. Designed to expose students to recent, popular, high-quality young adult books, the TRCA promotes literacy and independent reading.
Research has shown that reading for pleasure exercises the imagination, advances literacy, develops social skills, improves one’s health and positively impacts learning outcomes. It is for these reasons that CCRSB library staff is passionate about this program. For further information regarding the importance of pleasure reading please refer to the following links.
How are the books chosen?
Each year’s TRCA books are chosen by a committee comprised of CCRSB Library Services staff. The annual list of ten titles is carefully chosen based on the best critical reviews, readers’ reviews, and the books’ performances on well-respected awards lists. The titles for this year represent a wide range of genres and include some of the best fiction published between January 2016 and December 2017.
