Subject: AR Program articles

I have kept some back issues of School Library Journal which included
articles about the issues surrounding AR and Reading Counts types of
programs.  Here are the edition numbers and article titles:


July 2000       "Formula for Failure" by Betty Carter. pp. 34-37.

November 1998   The cover title is: "How Schools Sour Kids on Reading:
You  Can Do to Help."  The title of the article is: "Make Lemonade: How
Sweeten Your School's Climate for Reding" by Mary Leonhardt.  pp. 28-31

October 1996    "Hold the Applause! Do Accelerated Reader and Electronic

Bookshelp Send the Right Message?" by Dr. Betty Carter.  pp. 22-25

I use these articles whenever I am faced with someone who either
supports or pooh-pooh's these kinds of reading incentive programs.
they will be of help to those who recently asked about AR on this list.
