COMPUTER PROGRAM TEACHES MORE THAN READING

Gaston County Schools provide a powerful computer program called Accelerated Reader (AR) that teaches students much more than reading and building vocabulary by helping them gain an early understanding of how to succeed in school. Once students can read, especially in first grade, AR gives them the opportunity to compete with their own ability to reach higher reading levels if taught how to use the reports at the end of tests. Personal responsibility, pride and a good work ethic become instilled in students as they monitor their own progress and achievements.
