Goal

The goal of High Interest Books to Develop Lifelong Readers is to put high interest books in the hands of reluctant middle school readers.  

 

What will be done with my students

All of my students scored a level one or two on the FSA ELA and are reluctant readers. In order to improve their reading skills, students need to read more. The only way for them to read more is to supply them with age appropriate high interest books. Students will be provided these books and given time in class to read as well as the opportunity to check out the books and take them home to continue to establish their love of reading.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students who read more will improve their reading comprehension, fluency and vocabulary. The improvements in these areas will benefit the students when taking the FSA ELA test. My students will also find that reading can be an enjoyable activity and will continue to read throughout their lives.
