Accelerated Reader (AR) is a program in which students read books outside of class and take online comprehension quizzes based on the reading. Students earn points based on their performance on these quizzes.
Most young adult novels are AR books. AR books are assigned a level based on the complexity of the text. Some libraries include the AR level on the book, but the level can also be found at this website: http://www.arbookfind.com/.
When the student has finished reading the book, he or she can go onto the AR website here: https://hosted37.renlearn.com/2051796/ and take a quiz for that book. The points scored will count towards the yearly goal. Each student has been given a yearly point goal based on his or her reading level. Each student also has a range of book levels that he or she can read. This information can be obtained from each students’ contract sheet that was filled out at the beginning of the year, which Mrs. Shepp has in each student’s file.Please choose books that fall within or close to this range. Students must reach their Yearly Goal by June 7, 2020.
