    Wasatch Reads Cords

    We have a new program here at WHS!  Any student can now earn Wasatch Reads Cords to wear at graduation.   

    To earn the cords, students need to read and log 3,000 pages each school year.  (Upper Classmen, the yearly reading requirements are pro-rated, depending on your grade.  So, regardless of grade level, you’re are still eligible to earn cords by the time you graduate.)
     

    To participate in the program, students will need to access the READsquared program through Clever.  When you’re logged in, you’ll be able to log pages, track your next reads, and see which books are most popular with other students in your grade. 

    Simply go to www.clever.com, search for our school, and then select “Log in with Office 365.”  Once you’re logged into Clever, click on the READsquared icon to access your Wasatch Reads READsquared account.

    This video will walk you through logging pages and other features in your Wasatch Reads READsquared account: https://youtu.be/u9lPWRNNvec
     
    Stop by the library, if you have any questions!  We’re excited to see what awesome books you’ve been reading!

    Frequently Asked Questions Regarding This Program:
     
    Is it 3,000 pages just from now until the end of the year?
    –No, anything you’ve read this school year can count.  You’re fine to log any pages you’ve read from August through the end of the school year.
     
    Can I count things I’ve read in the past?
    –You can count anything you’ve read this school year.  Feel free to go back and log any book you’ve read since the beginning of the school year.
     
    Do audiobooks count?
    — Yes!  Audiobooks definitely can count.  Just look on Amazon or simply Google the page count of the book, so you’ll know the correct amount of pages to log.
     
    Can I count my science textbook?
    — No, textbooks and articles don’t count for this program.  You can count required reading from your classes.  But, it just needs to be from fiction or nonfiction books.
     
    Can I count an assigned novel in my English class?
    — Yes!  If it’s a fiction or nonfiction book, you’re fine to count it and log the pages.
     
    Do pages roll over to the next year?  
    — No, students will need to be reading and logging each year.  So, while you may read extra pages one year, those pages would not roll over and count toward your 3,000 pages on other years.
     
    Can you edit your pages once you’ve entered them if you made a mistake?
    –You’re able to edit titles and authors, if you accidentally make an error entering them.  But, you’re not able to adjust logged pages on your end.  However, Mrs. Heywood can make those adjustments in the program.  So, if you do make a mistake, just reach out to her, either through email or stopping by the library.
     
    Do have to meet a minimum page count every year, or can I do it all as a senior?
    –You’ll need to meet the minimum page requirement every year.  Being a consistent reader is a good thing.  So, rather than waiting for your senior year, be sure to decide now if you’ll be participating in the program.
     
    Is it just a program for seniors?
    –No, this is a program for any student.  9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders can all start the program this year, since it’s new and just launching.  The page counts have been pro-rated, based on grade level.  Seniors can participate just this year and earn their cords.  Juniors can participate this year and next year to earn their cords, and so on.
     
    What if I’m a new student, and I wasn’t here as a freshman?
    –We can easily adjust for any student.  Chat with Mrs. Heywood in the library about any special circumstance.
