A book is a dream you hold in your hands. ~ Neil Gaiman
Accelerated Reader (AR), provides a balance of independent reading practice with nonfiction reading and close reading skills practice. It is an optional program used to motivate students to become independent readers and includes a year end celebration for those meeting grade level goals/criteria. Using Accelerated Reader for independent reading practice involves three main steps: 1. The student reads a library or textbook selection. 2. The student takes an Accelerated Reader Quiz on a classroom computer, laptop, or tablet. The quiz assesses the student’s comprehension of key elements of the book’s content. Accelerated Reader immediately scores the quiz, manages all record-keeping tasks, and generates detailed reports describing student performance and progress toward goals. 3. Teachers (as well as parents) can use the reports to guide instruction, monitor the student’s independent reading, and help the student select appropriate reading materials.
