Accelerated Reader

This year, HSI students are continuing to use the Accelerated Reader (AR) program. All students, grades 6– 8th, are encouraged to participate; this is implemented to motivate students to increase their reading comprehension and reading levels. But, the most important goal regarding AR is to encourage a love for reading by developing confidence through practice. For those parents not familiar with the program, Accelerated Reader is a computerized reading incentive program. The students read from a series of selected books and take a test. The computer awards points based on the difficulty of the book and the number of questions that the students answer correctly. Literature-based reading practice allow students to perfect the reading skills they learn so that they can move beyond the struggle of decoding text and begin reading for learning and pleasure. AR is an individualized reading program for students. It allows teachers to set goals, track growth and monitor comprehension. We encourage every student to choose books within their reading level, or beyond, that are of interest to them. The love of reading will develop when students are not frustrated by the text in the books they select. AR is a wonderful tool for allowing this love of reading to happen. A letter has been sent home with the students. This letter provides you with valuable information on how to sign in and track your student's AR progress. If you have any questions regarding AR, please contact your student's ELA teacher or Ms. Carreon at mcarreon@harmonytx.org.
