Prevent Summer Slide!
Posted on June 9th, 2016
Keep up with reading over the summer! Every fall many students struggle to start school at their highest ability due to the summer months of being away.
Did you know that:
- In the summer up to two months of reading achievement can be lost.
- Up to 2/3 of the ninth grade achievement gap between students at or above grade level and those below is at least partially attributed to summer learning loss.
- Teachers spend approximately one month each school year re-teaching concepts from the previous year. This takes away from time that could be spent on the new curriculum.
