Scott, LA Students at J. Wallace James are reading in the halls, reading in the malls, preparing to take part in "Read The Most From Coast To Coast," on March 2, 2012, Dr. Seuss's Birthday.
"Read The Most From Coast To Coast," a national reading event set for March 2, challenges students to shatter the national one-day record for Accelerated ReaderTM Quiz-taking. Accelerated Reader, a reading management software program for K12 schools, helps educators
measure and improve reading comprehension levels.
"Students read a book at the appropriate level and then take a quiz on a computer," said Paula L. Graffeo, Librarian.
"The quiz assesses general comprehension of the book just read. Accelerated Reader scores the quiz, monitors results, generates reports, and provides a platform to manage individual reading practice."
Read The Most From Coast To Coast enables students to take part in a shared reading adventure, and, at the same time, show the world they understood what they have read. All students who take part in this nationwide challenge will be eligible to receive a Certificate of National Participation.
The one-day record for Accelerated Reader Quiz-taking is well above 2 million quizzes. On March 2, educators will be able to see the progress toward the national goal at www.renlearn.com/readthemost.
"We're excited about the event, said Paula L. Graffeo, Librarian "We expect to see many happy faces when the national AR quiz goal is shattered."
