Accelerated Reader is a computerized reading enhancement program that allows students to read and take quizzes on books they have read. Readinggoals are established by the teachers and students. Students earn points and prizes for passing tests on the books they read. The AR program helps motivate students to read books. It is hoped that this will lead to the development of a love for reading that will last a lifetime. This year at Hathaway School, we are working to expand our AR program as we know that READINGis the key to school success. We are using AR and many other tools to encourage every student, at every level, to learn to love to read. For them to find books about things that interest them, to improve their reading level and ability to understand what they read, and to improve all their school achievement through the process of reading every day. We invite parents, students, teachers, and the community to join us in helping our AR program grow.
