Wrap Up Summer With a RIF Reading Road Trip
As summer comes to a close, RIF is packing everything students need to visit new and exciting coast-to-coast locations and keep them reading these last weeks of summer! For each destination, there are suggested titles supported with fun reading resources in Literacy Central.
There is a significant literacy crisis in America today. Recent NAEP scores highlight that 65% of 4th grade students are not reading at NAEP proficient levels in 2019. Reading performance for both 4th and 8th graders dropped from the last NAEP testing in 2017 to the most recent testing in 2019. Learn more about the children’s literacy issue.
