Unfortunately, the number of students having difficulty learning to read is on the rise. 7 Speed Reading is urging a focus on methods to help decrease the number of struggling readers. A commitment by parents and teachers is required to improve the reading abilities of young learners.
“We need to make some changes,” states Marc Slater, Managing Director of 7 Speed Reading. “Parents, schools, and teachers need to be committed to improving the reading levels of our children. We need to utilize all resources available and consistently reinforce learning.”
According to a recent study by the Scholastic and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, teachers are seeing an approximate 40% increase in struggling readers compared to five years ago. And though students are allowed to move to the next grade, the gap between their reading ability and their other scholastic skills is becoming too wide. Students are operating at a higher grade, while their reading skills are far behind, and this merely sets them up for failure in the future.
While teachers are praised for their commitment to children and summer reading, it is imperative that this dedication extends to their homes. Parents must take an active role to improve their children’s reading abilities and reinforce what they have learned in school. “Reinforcement, consistency, and practice at all levels is essential to increasing reading speed and abilities,” remarks Slater.
With all that in mind, 7 Speed Reading Software is challenging teachers and parents to work together to combat this problem. Closing the gap and improving reading abilities is a must for all students. By doing so, Slater and 7 Speed Reading Software believe young learners will benefit greatly in all aspects of their lives.
