Research

 Reading is critical to success

 

  • Reading is the academic skill that is most important to achieving success as a student, and economic success as an adult.

 

  • Children who enjoy reading do better not only in language classes, but in all academic subjects.

 

  • Teaching our children to read is an urgent issue. Children who do not read proficiently by the end of third grade are 4 times more likely to leave high school without a diploma.

 

  • According to the U.S. Department of Education, more than 60% of K-12 school children read at below proficient levels.

We can help students become better readers!

 

Decades of research have clearly demonstrated that successful readers are taught:

 

  • Using evidence-based methods

 

  • Phonemic awareness skills

 

  • Phonics rules

 

  • Ways to improve their fluency

 

  • Comprehension skills
