A WhatWorksSC Award Candidate: The Summer Reading Loss Program


Monday - December 16, 2013


Over the past three summers, the South Carolina Department of Education has provided schools, especially those in high poverty areas, with books that are given to children to take home and read. Last summer as many as 12 books were chosen by participating primary and elementary students on their interest and ability level. A study conducted by USC indicated no reading level loss in many students and significant gains by others. The Summer Reading Loss Program is the topic of this week's podcast. It's another of the semi-finalists in the Dick and Tunky Riley WhatWorksSC competition. Education Associate Penny Danielson from the Department is our guest and discusses this successful program.
