Research shows that students should read about one million words a year to develop sufficient vocabulary and continually improve their reading proficiency.  Research also shows that vocabulary knowledge, which typically doubles during grades four through eight, is a direct result of how much a student reads. The more a student reads, the more the vocabulary knowledge increases. For example, students who read one-half million to one million words of running text generally learn approximately 3,000 new words per year.  The goal of Dover Middle School is for each of our students to read at least one million words this school year.
