A Washington, D.C. educator wrote this paper describing the importance of mitigating the summer slide for students by allowing them to hear fluent, expressive words.

  • Listening is a skill on par with reading, writing and speaking
  • Students can listen at a higer level than they can read, allowing them to hear higher-level vocabulary
  • Exposure to fluent text read aloud in human voices leads to comprehension

We hope you find this white paper useful!
