Clarendon Hills Middle School recognizes million word readers
CLARENDON HILLS – Clarendon Hills Middle School Media Resource Center Director Sally Duffy and CHMS Reading Specialist Betty Schoob coordinated a first-time activity this year that was met with success.
Duffy and Schoob adopted a reading-focused program used at another school district called “A Million Words” – a school-wide effort that challenged students, staff, families and neighbors to read one million words between Feb. 14 and May 15.
After reading a book, users entered the book in an online system, which also provided word counts for most books. Dozens met the challenge individually and as teams, including 68 students.
