The purpose of education is no longer on the instruction of knowledge. Instead, it now emphasizes on diversified values and implementation of life-long learning.
2. Establishment of national educational policies The Minister of Education, Lin Qin-jiang, announced “White Paper of Moving into A Learning Society” and named 1998 the Year of Life-Long Learning of the R.O.C. There are 14 schemes in the White Paper. The fifth one is to promote study group activities in combination with libraries. It would be started with public library system. School libraries come next.
3. Implementation of study group promotion plan MOE requested each senior high school to establish concrete plans to hold “class study group” activities in 2000. MOE gave some bookcases and books to promote the “class study group” activities.

4. Encouragement of discussions Students are divided into groups to collect, arrange and analyze information respectively. During each study discussion, students discuss and share what they learned, and teachers should be present and give comments. Study discussion was held no less than twice a semester and the recapitulation was completed in time.
5. Enhancement of relative measures Each student has a “ Reading Passport.” Each class has a “class bookcase.” Good works were selected for public praise and rewards. In the meantime, the selected works were compiled into a study group collection. The website for class study groups was built on which one can find policies, activities, books, reports, and discussions.
6. Adjustment and correction The members of study groups increased. Students, teachers and parents have their individual study groups. The number of books is increasing. Besides books, the reading materials are diversified to audio books, movies, music and plays. The school won Superiority and we were invited to participate in the " Reading Movement in Atmosphere of Book Loving" at Book Fair of High Schools in Taipei.

1. Formation of reading atmosphere From the statistics of borrowing/ returning of books at the library, the borrowing rate is increasing and the usage of AV Room also escalates. It is very common that students bring books to the class or classes buy books to enrich the collection.
2.Improvement of learning and study ability In each semester, the Library requests each class to submit no less than 10 reports after reading or on courses. The Library has now kept at least 2,100 articles. Students learned how to find substitutes or solutions to the difficulties in the books, core issues of the conflict, compare characteristics in the books with real people and even rewrite the ending.
3. Internal mental changes In the study groups, students fostered their reading habits. They were aware that reading is the foundation of all kinds of learning. Through the group discussions, such free, fair and open exchanges made them feel a sense of belonging, satisfaction, and mutual sharing. This made them enjoy reading, participation, and learning.
