Promising Practices: Reading with PRIDE

Promising Practices: Reading with PRIDE
Promising Practices LogoReading with PRIDE is our independent reading incentive program. Each student takes the Scholastic Reading Inventory in September, then has a 1:1 goals conference with their teacher to determine their reading goals based on that data. Students read in class and at home. They show evidence that they have read a book and receive a coupon for a free book from the Bookmobile that visits the cafeteria. Students have earned over 2,500 books thus far. We celebrate their quarterly goal achievement with incentive field trips. In 2015, the school-wide percentage of students who were not yet on grade level dropped from 76% in September to 67% in May.
