Moyer, Mary; Williams, Melissa
Knowledge Quest, v39 n4 p68-73 Mar-Apr 2011
The importance of reading is evident in every aspect of schooling and affects all areas of a student's daily life. At Delsea Regional High School in Franklinville, New Jersey, teachers (along with the school librarian) work to alter students' feelings about reading by using a variety of reading programs including the computerized reading management program, Accelerated Reader (AR). Delsea goes beyond the basics of the program to make it unique, personalizing it to fit the individual needs of students, particularly those in special education and remedial reading programs. This article discusses how customizing Accelerated Reader helps Delsea Regional High School encourage student reading.
