On the Importance of Summer ReadingPosted by Gayle Schmuhl at 5/19/2017
Summer is a time for families to reconnect, students to enjoy the outdoors and family vacations. Research shows that students can "slide" as much as two to three months in reading achievement over the summer. The good news is this is preventable. It is possible for students to maintain and even grow in reading achievement over the summer months. The answer is simply to read all summer long. There are ample opportunities for students to read and even be rewarded for their efforts. The Cuyahoga County Public Library has a summer reading program for all students where they are required to read as little as 20 minutes per day. They choose the materials and this includes graphic novels and audio books. These materials are available for free just with a library card. There are three branches within our school district in Berea, Brook Park and Middleburg Heights. The teen librarians recently visited Ford Intermediate School where they shared information about summer reading opportunities with all students.
