Overview of the Program
Overall, the purpose of Reading Counts is to empower students to become better, independent readers. Students may choose to read a book from the Reading Counts list. The list contains books on various topics and reading levels. After the student has read the book, he/she will take a computer generated quiz to evaluate comprehension. The results of the quiz allow the student and teacher to monitor and improve student progress. Students will build vocabulary and comprehension skills.
