Elementary students at Notre Dame have a “passport” issued to them at school this year. The passport will allow them to “Read Around the World.” This is part of the school’s plan to promote the Accelerated Reader program and to encourage students to read.
Research clearly shows that the more students read, the better readers they become.
As students earn points by taking comprehension tests on books they have finished reading, the children will move from country to country. Passports will be stamped to document students’ journey to becoming better readers.
