What accountability tactics are we using to record minutes read?
Students will fill out their Google Form daily reading log with a Lauren's House tutor, schoolteacher, or parent.
If students read by themselves on their own time, they will summarize what they read to Lauren's House tutors the next time they come in for programming. The tutor will then fill out the daily log with the student to record minutes read.
Once the read-a-thon concludes, each participating student will type up a short three-paragraph report that covers the following:● A summary of what books/sections they have read● What they learned (e.g., new vocabulary words)● Their favorite parts of the books
The students' reports will be published on our website!
What types of books can participants read?
During the after-school program, tutors will encourage students to read grade-level books. Parents and students can read any book of their choice in any language on their own time (e.g., Spanish). The lack of restrictions is to create a fun reading atmosphere!
Where can I see the results of how much students and parents have read?
A log of students and parents' reading progress (minutes read, title and author of books read, amount of family bonding time) will be uploaded here every Sunday, beginning on March 10, 2024. Once the read-a-thon concludes, we will post our achievements on our website!
