Tips for Making Summer Reading A Success – EP 337

Episode Takeaways

Looking for ways to make your summer reading program a success and avoid the summer slide? Research has shown that students who don’t read over the summer lose up to 20% of their reading level. That is up to three months of important skills that they learned during the school year. This makes it twice as hard for students to catch up once the new school year comes around. With the gaps that your students are already trying to overcome, this summer could be critical to their success.

Perhaps with a little help from us this summer, we can close some of the gaps.
