How can districts and schools effectively and rapidly reverse significant expected reading loss due to the COVID-19 shutdown of 30% or more?

Where is My Place in Class?

Hear from a panel of community leaders as we discuss how the current events and existing policies are affecting the mental and physical health of African American students, their safety, and learning outcomes. What can we do now to enforce change?
The Research Behind Reading Efficiency
Thursday, June 25 | 3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m. ET
Learn more about reading efficiency—a critical component of reading proficiency. You'll learn more about the physical and cognitive process of reading, the key differences between efficient and inefficient readers, and how to help your struggling readers.
70 percent of non-proficient readers read inefficiently. These students read more slowly than they speak, and they spend the bulk of their energies on the mechanics of reading rather than understanding the meaning of what they read.
30 percent of proficient readers exhibit the same characteristics, but these students have developed time-consuming personal strategies to compensate for the inefficiencies. While they can successfully comprehend text, it takes an undue amount of time to do so.
