Move students forward confidently.

The biggest advancement ever in the nation’s most widely used K12 reading program, Accelerated Reader 360 helps teachers meet key educational shifts with new tools they can use within their existing literacy blocks. The program continues to do what educators love. It motivates students to grow as goal-focused readers and enables teachers to set and monitor personalized goals. Yet, it adds new capabilities by layering instructional skills practice into leveled nonfiction articles.

Nonfiction articles to build knowledge.

Accelerated Reader 360 gives teachers the ability to browse, select, and share high-interest digital nonfiction articles with students. Teachers can browse by topic, such as History or Science, or by Skills to find articles that support teaching of Common Core State Standards, such as determining author’s purpose. Every article is leveled by ATOS and will soon have a Lexile® measure.

Students learn to read closely with built-in instructional skills practice activities that give them the opportunity to read, cite, write, and quiz. Each nonfiction article includes a highlight and tag activity and a “show you know” writing prompt. Then, students complete an AR Quiz, moving comfortably, into more complex texts and building the transferrable skills necessary for success in the content areas and on Smarter Balanced exams.

Personalized independent reading practice. Personalized independent reading practice.
