Goole Academy has embraced the Accelerated Reader programme for students in Year 7 and 8. Accelerated Reader is a customised reading programme that meets the needs of individual students. Students are given their personalised Reading Range – their ‘Zone of Proximal Development’ – this enables students to find a book which is appropriate to their reading level. English teachers and librarians encourage students to read a variety of books to develop their literacy skills and help them to meet the challenges of life in the 21st century.
Students can choose their books, read and take a computerised quiz on their relevant book. This gives the students instant feedback on their attainment.
Students wishing to look up titles that are part of the Accelerated Reader programme can search through over 25,000 books on www.arbookfind.co.uk
