Elementary Education Leaners Are Struggling with Literacy
A recent PACE study found that reading fluency had fallen 30% from previous benchmarks for second and third graders. Between ongoing interruptions in learning, challenges with remote instruction, and added stress on families and students, literacy skills have suffered for many learners. In addition, it’s estimated that hundreds of thousands of students skipped Kindergarten or attended 100% remotely, potentially missing out on early literacy awareness skills.
The solution? Reading intervention programs for all students. By exploring a variety of reading intervention solutions to support all struggling students, including special education and English language learners, teachers can get learners back on track towards literacy success this school year.
