User Groups

Data-focused ‘User Group’ meetings are formed of representatives from local schools using Renaissance products.

Taking place both in-person and online, these meetings provide a unique opportunity to share and discuss knowledge, experiences and key product information.

Research

Read T.W.O. using Accelerated Reader with pre-Star Reading students

To ensure that pupils are developing their comprehension skills at the same time as their word attack skills schools can use Accelerated Reader with very young pupils, or with older ones who cannot take a Star Reading Assessment.

Teachers use their professional judgement to set a ZPD level for individual pupils. Pupils should average 85% to 95% on quizzes and this indicates that the ZPD, the ‘not too hard, not too easy’ level of difficulty is appropriate.

Books can be read to pupils and the Accelerated Reader quizzes can also be read to them. Already over 700 quizzes have voice over options to support this approach.

Professional development

At Renaissance we believe that good quality professional development of the Senior Leadership Team, teachers and librarians is an integral part of improving pupil outcomes. It enables staff to maximise the investment your school has made in our programmes.

Initial training is essential for new customers, but annual review sessions are highly recommended. To speak to a member of our team about purchasing additional training, please call us on 020 7184 4040.
