Independent Minds, Independent Readers is an educational resource for a student centred reading program. The program encourages reading by providing teachers with a large selection of book tests which can be used to check on completion and comprehension of selected novels. Its goal is to encourage students to increase the number and variety of books they read without creating an unmanageable marking load for teachers.



The literature list selected for this resource incorporates cultural diversity and assorted interests to appeal to all students. The readability ranges from grade 4 to university level to meet teachers’ increasing challenge of stimulating students’ different intellectual needs.
