Read for Success: Improve Reading Proficiency and Combat
the Summer Learning Slide
This event takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015, 2 to 3 p.m. ET.
Read for Success is a groundbreaking program intervention designed
to combat summer learning loss and help early elementary students
excel at reading. Tested over a two-year period as part of an Innovative
Approaches to Literacy Grant from the U.S. Department of Education,
RIF’s evidence-based model is proven to increase students’ reading
proficiency and curb the “summer learning slide”—a contributing
factor to the achievement gap. Over the two-year study, 57 percent
of students saw gains in reading proficiency through access to
high-quality books, enriching resources, books for summer reading,
and professional development.
In this interactive webinar you’ll learn about the research and efficacy
of Read for Success and key components of the program, hear testimonials
and best practices from educators using the program, and learn how school
systems can implement Read for Success to improve reading proficiency and motivate students to read, learn, and grow.
