Our library believes reading is one of the most important skills your child will ever learn. The child who reads well, and loves to read-will excel in school and achieve personal growth. Here at Nicolet we are committed to this belief which is why we are placing a renewed emphasis on improving reading across the curriculum. We are using the program READING RENAISSANCE, a computer-based reading motivation system. READING RENAISSANCE has three main objectives.
1. To dramatically improve student reading performances, as measured by standardized test.
2. To improve students critical-thinking skills.
3. To instill in students a lifelong love of reading.
The RENAISSANCE program consist of Accelerated books, from which students choose the books they want to read. The AR books are color coded in different reading levels for each student. After a student reads a book of their choice, they then take a small quiz on the book in the computer. They then receive a print out of their score.
Our library has an inventory of just under 14,000 books for students to READ and use for RESEARCH. So come on in and sit down and read.
