COVID 19 Recovery through Reading

The best way to recapture the lost academic traction due to COVID 19 limited in-personal instruction is through reading.

A study of K-12 student reading habits demonstrated that 6 extra minutes of reading per day can turn a struggling reader into one who meets or surpasses their grade's level benchmark.

Students who read 15 minutes or more per day - about 46%- made accelerated gains!
