The Argument Against Accelerated Reader.
Biggers, Deborah
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v45 n1 p72-75 Sep 2001
Addresses a concern that integrating packaged technology (such as Accelerated Reader) is taking precedence over maintaining theoretically sound instructional practices. Addresses several arguments against the use and effectiveness of the Accelerated Reader program. Challenges educators to read the results and analysis of the National Assessment of Educational Progress reading assessments and to look at other recognized reading programs. (SG)
