Technology to Produce Terrific Readers!
My students need an iPad to explore new reading materials, find books in appropriate reading levels, and take Accelerated Reader tests to track their goals and progress!
Do you remember the utter joy of getting lost in a book for the first time? My students have yet to discover that joy in reading.
My students attend a good school in a good neighborhood, yet they have a severe disadvantage.
These students are in an intervention program because they are at least two grade levels behind in reading and performance. Somewhere along the lines, gaps formed in their learning, and as the years have gone by, these gaps have turned into valleys. We need to bridge that gap, and reading is just the ticket to do that!
Our school just instituted the Accelerated Reader (AR) program in an effort to assess students' reading levels, create goals with students to improve those levels, and motivate students to discover the joy in reading. However, this program requires the use of technology--technology that we are currently lacking. Having an iPad in my classroom would enable these students to easily research books, find books in their appropriate levels, and take AR tests that will help them track and reach their goals. In all reality, these students will most likely not go to the library on their own time to use this program. But, having an iPad at their finger tips, easily accessible in our classroom, would motivate them to research, read, and take AR quizzes--ultimately fostering the joy of reading!
Imagine bridging the gap--turning a valley into a mountain.
Imagine helping these intervention students climb up to their own grade level. This is possible with just a bit of technology. An iPad can help open a whole new world for these students--a world filled with adventure, mystery, comedy, action, and so much more. An iPad will foster their love of reading and the joy of diving into a new world.
