Preventing Summer Reading Loss | Oakland Schools Literacy

Preventing Summer Reading Loss | Oakland Schools Literacy | Things and Stuff | Scoop.it
The cumulative impact of summer reading loss significantly affects reading proficiency and school achievement, especially for students who are economically disadvantaged. Providing children with self-selected books to read during the summer is an effective strategy for addressing the problem of summer reading loss (Allington & McGill-Franzen, 2013). Oakland Schools encourages districts to create systems for collaborating with families, providing access to self-selected culturally-relevant, high-interest texts, and promoting summer reading for all students. It is essential that districts plan now for what supports will be in place for children they serve. While individual teachers have a role in supporting summer reading for their students and families, strategic district-level planning is required to ensure that all students have access to text over the summer.
Steve Whitmore's insight:
How will your district curb summer reading loss?  What role can you play?

21st Century Education Commission Listening Tour -- Northern Michigan Stop

21st Century Education Commission Listening Tour -- Northern Michigan Stop | Things and Stuff | Scoop.it
YOU'RE INVITED!

The Governor’s 21st Century Education Commission Listening Tour - Northern Michigan Stop:
Monday, January 30, 2017 | 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Traverse City Central High School
1150 Milliken Dr., Traverse City, MI 49686

4:00pm Welcome and Introduction of Commissioners
4:15pm Listening Session - Attendees and Commissioners break into small groups to discuss education visions, needs, and expectations
5:10pm Question & Answer Session - Commission members answer questions from the audience
5:30pm Event ends

**Please note: this event was originally scheduled for January 5, 2017, but was postponed due to weather conditions. The itinerary remains the same.

21st Century Education Commission members are interested in hearing from Michiganders about how we can work together to improve our state’s education systems. To gather input, the Commission has organized three listening tour stops, the third of which will take place in Northern Michigan. These stops are designed to gather direct input from Michigan's residents on the current state of Michigan’s education, the education systems citizens envision, and how we can work together to close the gap between the two. This input will help shape the Commission's final report and set of recommendations, which will be released on February 28, 2017.

Persons with disabilities needing accommodations for effective participation in this meeting should contact Laura Stoken at 517-241-5415 or via email at mieducationcommission@michigan.gov by January 23 in order to request mobility, visual, hearing or other assistance. Requests received after that date cannot be guaranteed, but efforts will be made to provide the accommodation requested.

Please note: Due to space limitations, registration will be capped at 150 attendees. Please bring a photo ID consistent with the name you used to register so you can gain access to the school.

If you have any questions, please email mieducationcommission@michigan.gov.
