Accelerated Reader

WHAT IS AR?

Accelerated Reader (AR) is a program to motivate students to read for pleasure. Woodland PTO has purchased this exciting program for our school. Students are rewarded with points when they demonstrate good comprehension of stories read independently. This program empowers students by allowing them to choose what books they read. It gives teachers information about how much each student reads for pleasure and how well they understand what they have read.

WHO MAY USE AR?

Currently AR is set up for third graders. It will be expanded to include fourth graders in the very near future.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A student reads a book. It may be from the Media Center, classroom, or a personal collection. Then the student takes a quiz on the computer. Points are awarded according to the level of difficulty of the book and the success the child has on the quiz.

STUDENTS AND TEACHERS GET INFORMATION :

Both the student and teacher get immediate, individualized, constructive feedback to direct ongoing reading practice.
