Key benefits for Virginia educators

Engage students

Students select books to work toward attainable, personalized goals. Sometimes kids just need a little help finding the right book. The Book Discovery Shelf provides ideas (including nonfiction and award-winners) based on reading level, history, and popularity.

close reading

Build transferable skills

Close reading skills help students succeed in content areas and during summative exams, too. Because students read, cite, write, and quiz on nonfiction articles to build their skills, they can move confidently into reading complex texts in content areas.

Feel empowered

Develop strong classroom routines while maintaining ease and flexibility. Support independent practice and facilitate whole- or small-group close reading practice. Instant access to data means you always know who needs your immediate attention and exactly how to help.

Access the data you need, fast

Reliable data helps you make the best decisions possible, so students achieve greater growth. Get the key data you need through powerful, fast dashboards that display data from practice and assessment. See how the dashboard works. »

"Accelerated Reader 360 is very interactive, with kids attacking the text and talking about what they’re reading, which goes hand in hand with comprehension. It’s not just learning in a bubble through a textbook. It’s authentic metacognition."
