Last night on Twitter I learned what AR points are. We didn’t have a program like this when I went to school. We were way to concerned with T-Rex attacks and carnivore safety. Basically each book is assigned an AR level. Students can earn things (like Six Flags passes) by reading and then passing a quiz about the book.
- City of Bones – Cassie Clare: AR Points 20
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – J.K. Rowling: AR Points 12
- Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger: AR Points 11
- The Adventures of Tom Sawyer – Mark Twain: AR Points 12
- Twilight – Stephanie Meyer: AR Points 18
The points amaze me. I am going to research today how points are awarded. Have you ever completed an AR reading program?
