Using the provided research on reading deficiency, and the IPad app, Haiku Deck, we will create an infographic that teaches others about reading deficiency in kids ages 5 through 12th grade.


  • In the U.S., more than 40 percent of children ages 5 to 8 say they are high-frequency readers, but, by ages 9 to 11, that number drops to 29 percent.
  • Considering the average child can learn up to 12,000 vocabulary words per year just by reading, such a drop-off can be costly.
  • By middle school, two-thirds of eighth-graders do not read at grade level.
  • And only one-third of all students entering high school are proficient in reading.
  • What’s more, boys lag behind girls in reading proficiency in all 50 states—in some states by as many as 10 percentage points.
