AR
  • Accelerated Reader (AR) is a computer program that helps teachers monitor our scholars independent reading practice.  Each scholar reads a book a his/her own level and reads at his/her own pace.  When finished, the scholar will take a short quiz on the computer. Passing the quiz is an indication that the scholar understood what they read.

    We have two Accelerated Reader Competitions at MLKJJS.  The first is the individual scholar competition.  Each scholar reads books and acquires test points to enter a point club.  When a new club level is met the scholar receives a prize.  Point clubs are 10 points, 25 points, 50 points and climbs by 50 points there after (100, 150, 200, etc.). The points accumulate for the entire year.  The second is the advisory class competition.  Each scholar must accumulate at least 10 individual points. At the end of the semester, the advisory classes that have 100% participation and every scholar in the class has at least 10 points wins a class treat.  The points restart at zero for the next semester.
