Tips for Accelerated Readers

You should read every day for at least 15 minutes to improve your reading ability and age. Improving your reading age will enable you to understand a range of texts. This will help you in examinations and lessons across all of your subjects. Here are some tips as to how to do this:

  • You should be reading books at the bottom end of your ZPD range and slowly increasing your book level as you pass quizzes.
  • Aim for 85% or above in your quizzes
  • Quiz as soon as you can, this will give you the best chance of passing the quiz
  • Make notes as you read- record the most important things that happened in the part that you read and consider the 5 Ws when doing this
  • Read as often as you can
  • Talk to somebody about what you are reading
  • Read books that you enjoy
