College School to participate in Read the Most from Coast to Coast


7:57 a.m., Feb. 26, 2013--Students at The College School (TCS) at the University of Delaware are preparing to take part in Read the Most from Coast to Coast on Friday, March 1.

Read the Most from Coast to Coast, a national reading event that began last school year, challenges students to join together to break the record for the number of Accelerated Reader Quizzes taken in one day. The record they will attempt to top, set last school year, is 3,581,992 quizzes.

Campus Stories

From graduates, faculty

As it neared time for the processional to open the University of Delaware Commencement ceremonies, graduating students and faculty members shared their feelings about what the event means to them.

Doctoral hooding

It was a day of triumph, cheers and collective relief as more than 160 students from 21 nations participated in the University of Delaware's Doctoral Hooding Convocation held Friday morning on The Green.

Accelerated Reader, a reading management software program for K-12 schools, helps educators monitor and manage students’ personalized reading practice. 

“Students read a book at the appropriate level and then take a quiz on a computer,” said Laurie Drumm, TCS master teacher. “The quiz assesses general comprehension of the book. Accelerated Reader scores the quiz, monitors results, generates reports, and provides a platform to manage individual reading practice.”

Read the Most from Coast to Coast enables students to take part in a shared reading adventure, and, at the same time, show the world they understood what they’ve read. All students who take part in this nationwide challenge will be eligible to receive a certificate of national participation.

On March 1, educators, parents, and other interested community members will be able to see the progress toward the national goal tracked in real time at this website. Additionally, a real time count of quizzes taken by TCS students will be posted on the school's website.
