Abstract

School Literacy Movement (SLM) is implemented as an effort to overcome the student low interest of reading, and become part of character education in school. A number of schools in West Java implement SLM through reading challenges with the students' routine activities of reading, writing book reviews, book presentations and discussions, and uploading book reviews to websites. This study aims to explore and review information about the implementation of School Literacy Movement by applying reading challenges in a number of Junior High Schools in West Java, in the context of strengthening character education. The research used qualitative approach with phenomenology method. The results showed that students' activities in carrying out the reading challenge gave strengthening to character education, especially the value of like to read, discipline, creative, independent, confident, curiosity and appreciative character. Actually, strengthening of the student's character values is also influenced by the type of book they read. It is therefore important to make sure the book reads inspire and have a positive effect on the students who read it.
