Tips from Renaissance Learning

Choose shorter before easier

Choose longer before harder

If the student is missing questions at the beginning of a book, it is too long. 

If the student is missing questions all over, the book is too difficult

The book should be at grade level or below for pleasure reading.  No one should ever be above a 5.2 (even h.s. seniors), it lowers the window of proficiency.

No retaking tests.  Students will pay closer attention while reading if they have to remember it.  This helps with the details and comprehension.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
