What is Renaissance Home Connect?

Renaissance Home ConnectTM improves the school-to home connection by allowing parents and students to login to a website to view progress and current assignments in Accelerated Reader (AR). Parents and students can view performance on reading quizzes, monitor progress toward goals, and see the studentīs online bookshelf displaying book covers of recently read books. Access to online results and assignments promotes discussion between parent and child, which in turn motivates students. Besides viewing the website, parents, grandparents, or other caregivers can stay on top of student progress by receiving an email after each Reading Practice or Vocabulary Practice quiz is taken in Accelerated Reader. Renaissance Home Connect keeps parents closely involved with their childīs education. (Renaissance Learning, Inc.)

AR Bookfind

Students are more eager to read when they select books about topics of high interest and at their appropriate reading level. AR Bookfind helps parents, students and teachers search books quickly by title or you can use the advanced search tool to find books in specific reading levels, genres or topics. You can search for book titles based on authors, topics, or titles of books. Just type what you want to search for in the blank field above and click Go. You will then be able to sort your search results, select book titles to add to your AR BookBag, print a list of your search results, or start a new search. (Renaissance Learning, Inc.)

Suggest AR quizzes

If you find a book that does not have an AR quiz. Send Renaissance Learning a message suggesting they create either a Reading Practice Quiz, Vocabulary Quiz or Literacy Quiz for the book.
