Junior League of Central & North Brevard’s summer reading program, Reading Rock Stars, aims to provide at risk children with access to summer learning opportunities in an effort to combat “summer slide.”
Summer reading loss, commonly known as the “summer slide” contributes to the widened achievement gap in students, especially low-income students.
Reading Rock Stars is an eight week program that will begin on June 10, 2014 and run through July 31, 2014. The program will be offered every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30-10:30am at the Boys & Girls Club of Cocoa.
During the summer months, students can lose knowledge and skills. By the end of summer, students perform on average one month behind where they left off. Summer reading loss disproportionately affects low income students. Low income students lose more ground in reading while their higher income counterparts may actually gain. Summer reading loss is cumulative and contributes substantially to the achievement gap. By the time a struggling reader reaches middle school, summer reading loss has accumulated to a two year lag.
We are proud to offer this program to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Florida. If you would like to get involved, contact us at email@example.com.
