Special "English Gym"
élan Library is a guided independent reading program designed to make students become independent readers while furthering their joy of reading.
An independent reader is a student who improves his or her comprehension skills and is able to, over time, read harder and harder books with limited help from a teacher (even when outside of our program).
So at élan, improving comprehension comes first. Everything in our guided independent reading program — quizzes, prizes, interviews, book reports, everything—is there to improve students’ comprehension abilities.
