This article features an initiative called "Real Men Read." Simply by creating posters showing real men of different backgrounds and appearances reading, the campaign attacks misconceptions regarding literacy and masculinity. The system started by first capturing male faculty and teachers reading, yet it has expanded to include a wide range of men worthy of being role models. By debunking the myth that literacy is not masculine, the campaign celebrates male readership, one teacher at a time, with specifically disciplinary examples of literacy. One middle school even bought hundreds of graphic novels to try and hook more boys on reading. Boys, who often struggle with attention span, can grow to hate reading, yet literacy is a key component to education, particularly those that seek further education after grade school.
