The RAW Reading Program is a reading-encouragement program with a technology component. Students record weekly reading on a log, and use the number of pages read to represent miles traveled from Washington, DC. Throughout the year, students track their “distance traveled,” and use Word and Excel to create an update document with a chart that displays their weekly reading. Their update shows total “miles” read and indicates the location to which they have traveled.
This lesson is not within my Level-based Curriculum Progression, but can be used at any level.
Recommended for First through Sixth Grade.
Uses Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, but can be adapted to any word-processing or spreadsheet program.
