Moncure School Students will Participate in National Reading Challenge
Moncure School students are preparing for a nationwide effort to “Read the Most Coast to Coast” on Friday, February 27. They are among hundreds of thousands of students who will join in this 4th annual reading challenge. Read the Most Coast to Coast encourages students to read more and take part in a one-day effort to beat the record for the number of Accelerated Reader Quizzes taken in one day. Last school year, students set a new one-day record of 4,987,949 quizzes.
At our school, as many as 250 students will take part in this shared effort to top a national reading record. All students who participate will receive a Certificate of National Participation. “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 MJ Gregory, AR School Coordinator. “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 K-12 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 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.renaissancelearning.com/read-the-most.
