Welcome to Reading Strategies!
Reading Strategies is a class designed to help students strengthen their reading. The class meets every day for nine weeks for 6th and 7th grade and for one semester for 8th grade. We use a computer program called TeenBiz3000 during class. This program gives your child access to nonfiction articles. The school pays for a subscriptions for your child's account and it will remain open for the entire school year. We will use the program in school to complete articles but students will be required to complete one article at home each week for homework. Once the quarter/semester is finished, it is important that your child continues to use TeenBiz3000 at home once or twice a week. This will help strengthen your child's reading and help to prepare for the Reading SOL in the spring. Grades are determined from the comprehension questions on TeenBiz3000 and will be determined as a 10% grade.
