St Mary’s students to take part in reading challenge

RUSHVILLE — Students at St. Mary’s School are preparing to take part in “Read The Most From Coast To Coast” Friday, March 1.

“Read The Most From Coast To Coast,” a national reading event that began last school-year, challenges students to join together to break the record for the number of Accelerated Reader Quizzes taken in one day. The record they will attempt to top, set last school-year, is 3,581,992 quizzes.

Accelerated Reader, a reading management software program for pre-12 schools, helps educators monitor and manage students’ personalized reading practice.

“Students read a book at the appropriate level and then take a quiz on a computer,” said Stephanie Hasecuster, school principal. “The quiz assesses general comprehension of the book. 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’ve read. All students who take part in this nationwide challenge will be eligible to receive a Certificate of National Participation.

March 1, educators, parents, and other interested community members will be able to see the progress toward the national goal tracked in real time at www.renlearn/readthemost.com.
