To earn the cords, students need to read and log 3,000 pages EACH school year. Students start this program as a 9th grade student and then continue participation their 10th, 11th, and 12th grade years, in order to be eligible.
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.
Stop by the library, if you have any questions! We’re excited to see what awesome books you’ve been reading!
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.
What if I’m a new student, and I wasn’t here as a Freshman?
–We can make adjustments for new students. Chat with Mrs. Heywood in the library about any special circumstance.
