DLH Academy Students to Take Part in National Reading Celebration
Students at DLH Academy are preparing for a nationwide effort to “Read the Most Coast to Coast” on Friday, February 27. We are among hundreds of thousands of students who will join in this fourth-annual reading celebration.
Read the Most Coast to Coast celebrates reading with a one-day event that encourages students to read as much as they can. Last school year, students set a new one-day record of 4,987,949 books read. Students will also complete Accelerated Reader™ Quizzes on the books they read.
At DLH Academy, as many as 200 students will take part in this shared effort to read the most and be a part of something big.
“Read the Most Coast to Coast is a fun-filled event that enables students at multiple grade levels to join in a shared reading challenge,” said Mr. Oliver, “Students are engaging in valuable reading practice, all while taking part in an event that joins students across the country in a collaborative effort focused on reading. We’re so proud of our students.”
Renaissance Learning’s Accelerated Reader is a K12 program that serves as a platform for teachers to manage independent reading practice. Students read books at the appropriate level and then take a quiz to show they understood what they’ve read. The web-based program provides access to over 160,000 quizzes, enabling students to choose from a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction books.
During the event, Renaissance Learning™ will track national quizzes on its hosted database and share progress online. Educators, parents, and interested community members will be able to see progress toward the national goal at www.renaissance.com/read-the-most
