As you are aware at Medina College we aim for all students to aspire and achieve. Accordingly, as a way to ensure all students are able to progress at Medina, we have been driving literacy across the curriculum in many different ways. Therefore, one of the college’s main focuses is for students to read for pleasure and thus stretch their reading skills and experiences. Accordingly, the ’Accelerated Reader Program’ (AR) at our college is used to make essential reading practice more effective for every student.
The aim of AR is to personalise, manage and assess each student’s reading practice and to build understanding of effective reading and learning. A number of research studies have documented the positive impact of Accelerated Reader on student reading achievement, motivation and their amount of reading.
