In our Accelerated Reader Programme: This week we celebrate five One Million Word winners!
What is it?
The Accelerated Reader Programme is an online programme that encourages students to read more books. They choose a book, read it and once finished they take an online quiz to get immediate feedback, which provides the motivation to further progress their reading skills.
Regular feedback from Accelerated Reader helps teachers and librarians get the opportunity to praise students for successes and also discuss with them what they have been reading.
According to an independent study by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and Durham University, Accelerated Reader produces “particularly positive effects”.
The Accelerating Reading Programme is very active at Hayle Academy with all Year 7 and 8 students participating. I am pleased to say the following students have taken reading very seriously and received their certificates for reading over a million words since September.
Mr Martin awarded certificates and badges to the qualifying students.
