“Placing books in the hands of children to develop an interest in reading is critical. Placing targeted, high-interest books with STEAM focus in the hands of children is brilliant” –Patrick Pope, Principal, Friendship Technology Preparatory Middle PCS, Washington, D.C.
Introducing Read for Success, a ground-breaking program intervention designed to help early elementary students excel at reading.
Tested over a two-year period as part of an Innovative Approaches to Literacy Grant from the U.S. Department of Education, RIF’s evidence-based program is proven to increase students’ reading proficiency and curb the summer learning slide – a contributing factor to the achievement gap.
Over the two-year study, 57% percent of students saw gains in reading proficiency through access to high-quality books, enriching resources, books for summer reading and professional development.
Read for Success is ideal for school systems, classrooms and community organizations looking to improve reading proficiency across a multiple spectrum of students grades K-3. It’s a road map to promote systemic change in communities and ignite a reading revolution across America.
