How Teachers Use the Accelerated Reader Program

1. To motivate: If a child is a struggling reader, AR provides an opportunity to gain confidence and to learn to enjoy reading. It is easy for a child to find a book at his/her reading level so reading becomes enjoyable rather than frustrating. If your child is an excellent reader, AR will help him or her choose the right level of books for challenge and enjoyment.

2. To encourage: Practice is the key to reading success. Teachers using AR motivate students to get more reading practice. Successful students want to read more and more!

3. To provide individual help: The AR computer program creates reports that help the teacher guide your child's progress. The teacher will know if your child is having difficulty and can offer immediate support.
