Accelerated Reader (AR) produces an average of two years’ reading age growth in just one academic year while promoting reading for pleasure.
AR is a powerful tool for monitoring and managing independent reading practice. With AR, teachers create a reading programme to meet the needs of every student. Using information generated by the software, teachers help students select books that are difficult enough to keep them challenged, but not too difficult to cause frustration. In addition, it helps teachers to monitor students’ vocabulary growth, literacy skills development and reading skills taught through other reading schemes. Accelerated Reader helps develops lifelong readers.
