AR - PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Students select and read library books, both fiction and non-fiction, that match their individual ability levels and interests. Upon completing a book, the student takes a brief comprehension quiz on the computer. AR scores the quiz and keeps track of the results, allowing teachers to see how well the student is doing with reading on his own. This is "guided independent reading," we at D.H.Stanton have found it to be an effective strategy.
