Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader (AR) is a computer program that helps teachers monitor and manage children’s independent reading practice. Children choose books at their own level, read them at their own pace and then, when finished, quiz on the book. Feedback provided from the quiz allows the child and the teacher to choose new books, discuss strategies for reading etc…
