Reading is the Open Sesame for acquiring knowledge: learn to read, and you can read to learn just about anything. Children begin the process of learning to read long before entering school. For all students, the ability to read is integral to a successful education/future.
As a school we pride ourselves on developing students’ reading comprehension skills from the moment they enter our gates. Starting from Primary level at ACG School Jakarta, the students have a variety of supported reading opportunities, such as guided reading, shared reading, home readers, independent reading and reading assessments. Guided reading is when the teacher spends one-on-one time with a student while supporting and guiding them as they use their reading comprehension skills to understand the text. We also provide each student with a levelled book to read at home every day. Teachers also regularly assess the students reading level so that they can teach to the point of need and so provide the students with relevant, engaging and challenging texts.
