What is Accelerated Reader?

Accelerated Reader is a powerful tool for monitoring and managing independent reading practice. With Accelerated Reader, teachers can create a reading programme to meet the needs of every student. Renaissance Home Connect improves the school-to-home connection by allowing parents, carers and students to log in to a website and view the student’s practice and progress towards targets.
