Mission Statement of GMS Library Media Program

The mission of Geneva Middle School Library Media Program is to ensure that students are effective in locating resources and information, establish a lifelong love for reading, and become information literate so that they can meet the necessary skills to be successful in the 21st century.

 

  

Renaissance Place Enterprise

      First, a student's optimal reading level is determined through the STAR Reading Enterprise assessment.  This assessment provides information on a student's overall reading ability and suggests a range of book levels for each student called the "zone of proximal development', or ZPD. Teachers then set reading goals for each nine weeks.  Students then select a book on the ZPD level and read to take an AR quiz. Accelerated Reader offers more than 150,000 quizzes on both fiction and nonfiction titles. Reading Practice Quizzes ask questions that measures a student's comprehension of a book and vocabulary.

 

 

Renaissance Home Connect

Parents please remember to utilize this program as you can see the progress toward reading goals, conduct book searches using AR Book Finder, review AR quiz results, and view the number of books and words read.

 

 AR Recognition:

In order to participate on AR Reward Days, students must achieve 85% or higher in comprehension on AR quizzes and meet their point goal. The AR  Reward Days will be at least twice a year.

 

 

Geneva Middle School Library will have their annual book fair this Spring of 2018.  The profit we make will purchase new books.
