  • ACCELERATED READER
    Satilla Marsh has a wonderful program to encourage reading and promote better comprehension for students in all grades. The program is as easy as 1-2-3. The student selects a book, then reads the book (or listens to the book), and finally takes a test over the book on the computers in the Media Center. The computer keeps track of the student's reading and awards points for comprehension. The program motivates students to read more and better books.
