LC21-83A Keeping Children Engaged with Reading using Accelerated Reader

"Using Accelerated Reader to develop and strengthen a reading culture"

 

The presentation will outline how both Primary and Post Primary schools across Ireland are using  Accelerated Reader and MyOn to develop and strengthen a culture of reading. It will also show how AR can be used to establish baseline scores for pupils and how improvements in comprehension and fluency are measured. Accelerated Reader is generally aimed at pupils who already have the basics of reading from around 2nd class right up to Junior cert students. It compliments programmes such as Literacy Lift Off very well and really motivates pupils in primary school or those starting post-primary to engage fully in reading for pleasure.
