  20. 20. Why reading? Only 1/3 of all students entering high school are proficient in reading -- only about 15 % of African American students, and 17 % of Hispanic students. ( NAEP Reading_2009) Students who don't read proficiently by third grade are 4x’s more likely to leave school without a diploma when compared to proficient readers. ( The Annie E. Casey Foundation ) Every school day in America, 3,000 students drop out -- the majority of them are poor readers. Students with below grade level reading skills are 2x’s as likely to drop out of school as those who can read on or above grade level. ( Adolescent Literacy: A National Reading Crisis) More than one third of all juvenile offenders read below the fourth-grade level. (Adolescent Literacy: A National Reading Crisis)
  21. 21. Because… Children learn an average of 4,000 to 12,000 new words each year as a result of book reading. (Scholastic: Classroom Libraries Work!) Students who read widely and frequently are higher achievers than students who read rarely and narrowly. (Scholastic: Classroom Libraries Work!) Research has found a relation between the amount of time that children read for fun on their own and reading achievement. (Handbook of Research on Teaching the English Language Arts)
