Summary

Summary

Accelerated Reader is a program based on the fact that students become more motivated to read if they are tested on the content of the books they have read and are rewarded for correct answers. Students read each book, individually take the test on the computer, and receive gratification when they score well. Schools using the Accelerated Reader program have seen a significant increase in reading among their students.

Middle school and high/low resources that will help young teens and reluctant readers get the guidance they need.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-Goldstein begins with the "nuts and bolts" of how the disease develops, giving readers a quick overview of how the nervous system works and how the myelin "insulation" on nerves breaks down and leads to scarring (sclerosis) of tissue. Symptoms are presented, diagnosis and treatment are explained, and an entire chapter is devoted to treating the spirit, acknowledging the emotional effects of the disease as well. Hospital explains various aspects of a hospital stay, from admission to discharge, including a chapter devoted to a day in the life of a patient. Both volumes refer to teen patients, and the books are accessible and informative. The photos are basically decorative.-Christine A.
