Stolen from Kristen Williams, former school library manager at St. Joan of Arc:
#1 Be Proactive– Know your book level and be able to request your own books using the iPads.
#2 Begin with the End in Mind-Be thinking of your AR goal when choosing books.
#3 Put First Things First-First choose several AR books in your range, then look for an “at home” book. This could be a book that is not in your range that you want your parents to read to you, or a book, that is not AR, about a subject that interests you.
#4 Think Win-Win- Try to find a book that you will enjoy that will also help you reach your goals.
#5 Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood-Listen to your librarians.
#6 Synergize– Work with your librarians to choose a good book.
#7 Sharpen the Saw– Read a great book, talk about a great book with friends, get lost in a great book or series.
