Principles of the Entire Reading Tree

  1. No-one succeeds on the tree alone. All reading is a team effort, between the reader and their mentor. In the case of adult students (“RT members”), this is typically the student and their madoguchi and/or teacher. In the case of kids, this is typically the student and their parent or guardian. Mentors are called “Shidousha”. Shidousha have their own points system called “Shidousha Sen” so support levels can be monitored.
  2. 1 student = 1 login. Parents and guardians do not have their own login.
  3. RT Members have a Reading Tree Pseudonym made up of their own name and a keyword chosen by their madoguchi. This is also called, and is programmatically, their Display Name and Nickname. This is because we want to maintain some anonymity when publishing results such as league tables.


  1. It is generally advisable to do Reading Tree man-to-man orientations at the start of the second or third month since nyukai.
  2. Orientations should involve a quiz, a presentation, a video and a demonstration.
  3. Re-orientation should occur for individuals and groups every year as the RT gets updated, more features are added and bad habits need to be addressed.
