Stopping the Summer Learning Slide – Using Audio Books to Help At Risk Students.

A white paper on the positive effects of incorporating Tales2go into a classroom literacy rotation.  Katherine Orlando taught rising second grade students as part of a program run by Horizons of Greater Washington.  Horizons partners an independent school with a low-income public school and provides a six-week summer enrichment program.  The aim of the program is to mitigate summer decline in students’ academic achievement, improve student’s school-year attendance and performance, build self-esteem and encourage families to become involved in their child’s education.  During the program, using Tales2go as part of her literacy rotation, Ms. Orlando saw marked improvement in her students’ excitement about reading and reading scores.
