On Tuesday, Nov. 13 the Interscholastic Reading Club will participate in the fall competition. This is the first competition of the year.

Students read two to three books each and compete against schools by answering questions based on their readings, for which each team earns a score.

Reading Club is a chance for students to develop reading skills.

“When students read more they improve overall comprehension. This would help them to understand the text in their classes as well as text on the state tests,” club adviser Michele Janosik said.

Janosik has advised the club for six years. Although usually averaging six members, this year’s team has 12.

“More importantly, [this club] fosters a love of reading which has life long benefits,” Janosik said.

The Reading Club is also an opportunity for students to acquire leadership positions for the National Honor Society.

Contact Janosik at [email protected] or visit room B304 for more information.
