Learn about how we inspire and motivate students in a
fun and rewarding way to read books that they may find
to be too difficult on their own.
A fun way to inspire and encourage our members!
We currently have 5 different categories of achievements for our club members offering a total of 33 different individual badges with an additional 22 variations. In addition to being able to proudly display badges on their member profile page, each student will receive a Certificate of Achievement for each badge. As reading is only one of the four primary aspects of learning a second language we want to encourage our members to strive for the Legendary Reading Achievements as they also require members to write. Members that earn Legendary Badges will receive Certificates of Achievement and physical patches for each badge they earn.
There are a total of 11 Reading Achievements that our members can earn. Beginning at the lowly Bookworm, awarded after finishing one book; our members can work their way through 10 additional levels ending with the rare and coveted Book God. In addition to these 11 levels, there are gender variations for each level offering a total of 22 different Regular badges.
There are a total of 11 Legendary Reading Achievements that our members can earn. These achievements are upgraded version of the regular badges and are awarded when members write a book review for each book the complete. Just like Regular Reading Achievements there are gender variations for each level offering a total of 22 different Legendary badges. The highest level any member can reach is Legendary Book God which is the most rare and difficult to achieve.
In addition to our monthly meetups the bookclub hosts an online forum to provide help to students while reading the books. In addition to the month’s current book members can post just about anything they want as the forum also serves as a venue for members to simply socialize. Our most active students can award three different participation achievements. Those students that enjoy being the first to post a new topic can attain the Conversation Starter Badge which can be upgraded to the much regarded Forum Filosopher badge. Members that dont like to start new topics but are happy to chime in regularly can achieve the Chatty Cathy badge after posting 1000 times.
In addition to the main reading achievements, members can also earn badges for competing other activities. In the way that perfect attendance is a time honored and awarded tradition in school so it will be for the bookclub. Members that attend meetups without missing any can earn one of four participation achievements. Platinum member status will require attending every single meetup for just over 4 years. This badge could perhaps be the most difficult of all bookclub badges to attain.
Each week like clockwork our president posts her weekly message to the club. In her messages you can find everything from jokes to pointers to song lyrics on occasion. Two things that you will find in every message? Inspiration and the weekly quiz! From the very first quiz it has proven to be quite competitive often being answered within minutes of posting. Our members can attain four levels of achievements beginning at Rookie and ending in the ultra rare Scholar. Considering there are only 52 quizzes in a year it will be quite the challenge for any one student to answer 50 correctly.
Regular Reader Achievements
Regular achievement badges are awarded based on the number of books a student reads. Unfortunately, despite our love for Manga and Comic Books only books in novel format qualify. While we mostly rely on the honor system our Secretary is a stickler for rules and is not beyond administering random quizzes! For each level a student achieves they will receive a digital badge to display on their profile and a certificate of achievement. Larger treasures await our highest achievers!
Legendary Reader Achievements
Legendary reader achievement badges are awarded based on the number of books a student reads and the number of book reviews they write. Same rules apply for Legendary as regular achievements. For each level a student achieves they will receive a SPECIAL EDITION digital badge to display on their profile and a certificate of achievement. Beginning at Legendary Knight of Books, students will also achieve a physical patch of their badge! Larger treasures await our highest achievers!
Other Reader Achievements
In addition to achievements for reading and writing book reviews we have two other categories for achievement. Members will earn digital badges and certificates of achievement for attending consecutive meetups and for winning weekly reader quizzes. Beginning at Silver and Novice Achievements members will receive a physical version of their digital badge and, just like other achievements, special treasures await our highest achievers!
