Accelerated Reader

What is Accelerated Reading?
AR is a computer program that helps educators manage and monitor student's independent reading practice. Students select a book at their independent reading level and read at their individual pace. When finished, students will take a short quiz on the computer.  Every book they read and quiz they take will earn them points towards their reading goal.  Every goal they hit, students will earn rewards.
AR Login is through Classlink
