Read Theory

This year we will again be utilizing the ReadyTheory Program in Language Arts!

ReadTheory is a K-12 online reading comprehension program that assesses reading ability and builds reading comprehension by providing texts for students to read at a “just right” level. Over 1,000 informational and narrative passages are leveled by grade and Lexile level. ReadTheory’s algorithm senses student performance and is able to adapt to fit reading needs. As students read and answer quiz questions, ReadTheory presents passages (either more complex or less) that aim to find and establish the right level for each student. It’s web-based and usable on both desktop and mobile devices, so students can access their accounts wherever they are.

ReadTheory assignments will be given as homework assignments and will be monitored and assessed frequently.

Independent Reading Project! (Grades 6, 7, and 8)

Good afternoon students and parents!

Today students have been given the assignment packet for the Independent Reading Project. Many students are excited about the opportunity to read, review, and create a presentation about a book of their choosing! My goal is that students begin to read a minimum of 30 minutes per night. The only requirements regarding novel selection are that: the book has a minimum of 150 pages, the book adequately meets the reading level needs of the student, and that the book has not already been made into a movie.

For those students who need further instruction/accommodations for this assignment please reach out to me! I am more than happy to help modify this assignment to best meet the needs of each of our students at OJCS! Email me at m.washerstein@theojcs.ca   with any questions, comments, or concerns.

This assignment has been divided into a few key dates:

  • Book must be chosen and approved by Friday October 5th
  • Book must be read completely by Friday October 26th
  • Turn in Part A (Book Report Form) and Part B (Summary) on Monday October 29th
  • Part C (Creative Piece) Due on Wednesday November 7th (Presentations begin that day)
    • Only choose ONE option for Part C
