Accelerated Reader (AR)
Accelerated Reader helps teachers track students’ independent practice and progress with reading. The program doesn’t teach reading skills and strategies. It’s intended to encourage children to read independently, at their own level and pace. The idea behind AR is that children enjoy reading more when they can select their own books. (The program has more than 150,000 titles to choose from on its BookFinder list.) Each book has online “reading practice” quizzes.
