Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 17, 2013 6:28 PM

This infographic discusses how audio books may increase students reading scores. The infographic is split into a number of sections:

* The Problem in National

* The Benefits of Spoken, Sophisticated Language

* How Audio Books Help

A few of the statistics in this post are below.

* Students who don't read by 3rd grade are 4 times more likely not to graduate from high school.

* Only 32% of 4th grade students are proficient readers.

Many infographics that we find provide evidence but neglect to provide the resources to help us assess the evidence. This infographic provides links to over 20 resources that were used in its' creation. In addition, the website that posted the infographic, Tales2Go, provides audio books for students and provides access to additional resources on their website (http://www.tales2go.com/). Audio books available through Tales2Go are primarily for students in grades K - 5.
