Every day students should be reading an Accelerated Reading AR book in their Zone of Proximal Development ZPD. Reading at home for 20-30 minutes a day is a requirement of all LCA students. After reading every 25 pages of a story, students should record any main events, new characters, setting, plot development, theme, foreshadowing, etc. We will review these literary terms at the start of the year. Upon finishing the book, student then submit their AR record to the teacher for permission to take the AR test online. Students earn AR points each quarter. A point system is used to assess students progress. The ZPD will be determined within the first month of school.
