Goal

The goal of our reading project is to increase students reading interest and test scores by acquiring high interest reading books and novels.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will be given the opportunity to read high interest books of their choosing and take compatible quiz and/or test to receive additional credit opportunities 

 

Benefits to my students

Students impacted by this reading project will benefit from being able to read books that they highly enjoy and want to complete rather than suffer through. Thus, this will increase their comprehension and retaining of important information and details.  

 

Describe the Students

My class consists of both low performers and ESE students who at times lack the motivation or abilities to connect with the books in our class at this time as they are not about the world in which they frequent 

 

Budget Narrative

The above listed items are books that my students request daily while in group rotations. The numbers attached would permit each group member and the teacher the benefit of a copy of their own while in independent reading.
