Accelerated Reader (AR) is a program we use at Durham Elementary School. Students read books at the appropriate reading level and they read at their own pace. Students then take a quiz on what they have read. The information gathered from the quiz will give students, teachers, and parents immediate feedback on the student’s reading and vocabulary progress. Thanks to the generosity and support of our PTS organization, our program has been greatly expanded.
Using AR Bookfinder, students can search a list of over 150,000 titles from home. They can enter their own reading level range and then add keywords to search for subjects they’re interested in. Now many of the books in your home or public library may be used with our reading program.
With the user name and password provided by your student’s teacher, parents and students can monitor progress using Renaissance Home Connect. You can even set your account to automatically notify you by email when your student takes a quiz.
