"What is AR?"

That was from a comment I got on the blog recently.  Since I'm participating in the 2012 Comment Challenge, I'm getting some great comments and questions from some new faces.

I won't go into another diatribe about AR (Accelerated Reader) now because I've done that here and here and here's a good one.

Basically it's an expensive commercial reading incentive program with little research to back it up.  Better to spend money on interesting books kids want to read which is a better incentive in itself.

Keep the comments and questions coming!

Thanks,
Jim
