Engaged Reading

 

 

 

As we will not have a structured time during our Quarter Timetable for ER, we would encourage students to find time at home to read.

At McRoberts, we believe that reading is an important life skill.  (In most years) to support this belief McRoberts dedicates 120 minutes a week to Engaged Reading.  Engaged Reading (ER) promotes literacy, encourages reading for pleasure, and allows for cross curricular spin offs.  Access to a variety of topics and authors as well as a variety of strategies is important to develop “Engaged Readers”.  Students are responsible for bringing reading material on a topic of their choice to Engaged Reading.
