Accelerated Reader Goals

For 2015-2016


What is ?Accelerated Reader?
Accelerated Reader is a computer based, reading management and motivational system designed to complement existing classroom literacy programs for grades K-12.
The purpose of AR is not to provide reading instruction. Rather, its purpose is to help motivate students to read more books at an appropriate level of difficulty by using a point system tied to individual goals. AR seeks to motivate students to read advanced level books and to increase their personal reading time.
