I need some feedback regarding implementing Scholastic Reading Counts or
AR, something the principal at my school wants me to do.
I feel that my heart is not in a program such as this, where students read
lexiled books and take quizzes to incentivize them to read. To me, it feels
kind of forced.
Do any of your school librarians use Scholastic Reading Counts or AR? Can
you give me the pros and cons?
If you don't use these programs, can you provide feedback as to how your
school library may otherwise motivate kids to read? Through another
program, or other methods?
I would appreciate prompt feedback, as I'm supposed to meet a deadline to
implement this program, and would like to gather as much information as
possible about whether it is truly beneficial.
