"READING STILL COUNTS" INFORMATION:

You will be taking an SRI test in-class (3x a year) to determine your current reading level. Once we know your reading level, you can use it to assist you in choose books that are that appropriate reading level for you.

Your semester goals are due:
#1 December 10
#2 May 27

Your Reading Still Counts goal is determined by your SRI score:
789 or lower = 2 books (for the semester)
790-1009 = 3 books
between 1010-1185 = 4 books
1186 or higher = 5 books

Your Reading grade in Aeries is determined by how well you have met your goal and completed your reading projects:
90-100% = A
80-89%= B
70-79%= C
60-69%= D
