Hope Valley College believes that good reading is one of the most important features of a good education. Students who try hard to improve their reading are more successful in secondary school, regardless of their age, background or ability.
Accelerated Reader is an online reading programme that we provide for all our Year 7 and Year 8 students.
Put simply, students do an online reading-age test which then directs them to a range of books in the library which is achievable but provides challenge. Once the book has been read, the student does an online test and gets immediate feedback. Students respond to regular feedback and are motivated to make progress with their reading.
