Each nine-week grading period, students will be required to:
· Read 5 books based on reading level
· One book must be from the required reading genre given by teacher
· Have read 2 books and taken 2 tests by mid-term
AR will be included within the reading grade each nine-week grading period. If students successfully read 5 books at 80% comprehension, they will receive a total of 50 points for the nine weeks. That is the equivalent of 10 points per book completed successfully.
For example if Sally reads 3 books at 85% comprehension and 1 book at 90% and one at 75%, she will receive 40 out of 50 total points.
Students will have opportunities to read in class, but they also need to be reading at home.
