Three Coleman Teachers Get National Recognition
Three Coleman School District second grade teachers received national recognition for outstanding performance in advancing reading practice and proficiency.
Judy Brown, Lisa Mongin, and Don Engebregtsen were awarded Accelerated Reader Model and Master Classroom Certification by Renaissance Learning based in Wisconsin Rapids.
Model/Master Classroom Certification acknowledges that Mongin, Brown, and Engebregtsen's efforts to promote personalized reading practice, assess comprehension, and monitor progress have resulted in measurable improvements in reading proficiency.
Accelerated Reader Model/Master Classroom Certification demonstrates that a majority of their students have met or exceeded goals for reading practice and comprehension. After reading fiction and non-fiction books at the appropriate level, students take quizzes to assess their comprehension. Accelerated Reader provides immediate feedback to help teachers facilitate reading level growth.
Accelerated Reader, the world's leading reading software program, enables teachers to personalize reading practice and monitor comprehension to optimize growth. Today's cloud-based version provides access to more than 160,000 quizzes, more than half of which are for non-fiction books. This vast collection of quizzes provides opportunities for students to read and comprehend texts of steadily increasing complexity from early grades through graduation. With a teacher's permission, students may take quizzes on most mobile learning devices, reducing the need for students to wait for computers.
