READING SKILLS

Jonathan Kozol reports in his book ILLITERATE AMERICA that forty-two percent of all African-American and Hispanic children 17 years of age can not read beyond the sixth grade level and that over 27 million Americans are illiterate.

Often times, the lack of reading done by students is related to the material that they are reading, especially when it comes to culturally related materials. Why would a student want to read material that is culturally negative and exclusive, as opposed to something that is culturally positive and inclusive?

With this in mind, our programs are geared towards improving reading skills by adjusting content, as well as by using technology to allow a student who is having problems reading, to improve at his/her own pace.

Highlights:

Various types of material that are culturally oriented from the different subject areas

The READING COMPREHENSION Testing will also help students to improve his/her reading skills by encouraging the students to read the material
