Independent Reading Program

In August students will complete a STAR assessment in order to obtain their reading diagnostic report. Those reports will be sent home for parents to view as well. From the diagnostic report, students will have their AR reading goals created. Those goals will always appear on the student’s AR reading record so he or she will be able to monitor his or her progress.

Independent Reading Homework

Students should be reading their independent reading material on an average of twenty minutes per day or 140 minutes per week.  As students complete a selected AR book, they should then take the corresponding AR quiz.  Students will be expected to have their AR books with them at school throughout the day. Many teachers will have extra time at the end of a period in which students will be expected to read. Students who come to my class without their reading material can expect to receive a tardy if they have to go to their lockers in order to get a book.  We are scheduled as a class to have library time every other week with language arts scheduled on the off weeks so students will have weekly library time during classtime. Students will have opportunities to go to the library during their Warrior Time. Students can also go to the library in the morning after 7:30 a.m. until the first bell to use the resources as needed.

AR Grading

A mid-term grade for AR will count as 50 points. This is a grade to encourage students not to wait until the last minute to try and reach their goals. Each nine weeks an AR grade will be given which will count as 100 points. This grade reflects the student’s AR goal. Students who have achieved more points than their required AR goal may receive up to and including 30 extra-credit points.
