Slam Dunk for Literacy started on October 24th.  Slam Dunk for Literacy is a 5-week reading challenge sponsored by the IU Athletic Department and the School of Education’s INSPIRE Living Learning Center. 

Students will bring home a parent letter and reading log to record the minutes they read.  The reading challenge ends on November 27 and reading logs will be turned in on November 28.

Students will read a certain number of minutes each week based on their grade during the 5-week challenge.

Grades K-1 must read 100 minutes a week.

Grades 2-3 must read 150 minutes a week.

Grades 4-6 must read 200 minutes a week. 

If they complete this challenge, they will earn a ticket to either an IU Men’s Basketball or Women’s Basketball game. IU will attempt to get students’ their first preference in regards to what game they want to attend, however it is not guaranteed that they will receive their first choice. 

Parents/guardians may purchase additional tickets at a discounted rate. For the Men’s Basketball game those tickets will be $28 and each child is limited to 2 additional tickets. For the Women’s Basketball game, the tickets will be $2 each and there is no additional ticket limit. 

Top readers will have the opportunity to take a tour of the Cook Hall facilities, where IU’s basketball teams practice! 

If you have any questions, contact your child's teacher or Marlin Instructional Coach Emily Anderson (
