March is Read Aloud Month!
Help every parent understand how reading aloud 15 minutes from birth through 3rd grade builds a child's brain and lifelong learning capacity.
What is One to One?
One to One: Practicing Reading with Students trains business and community volunteers to produce measurable, positive results for first to third grade students who are struggling with reading. The volunteers, or literacy coaches, practice individually with students 35 minutes a week; in a simple format that emphasizes reading, writing, and building basic skills. As a result, volunteers are able to make serious, meaningful connections with struggling students and can help move them toward reading proficiency, which is a critical factor in a child's academic success. In order to become a literacy coach in the One to One program, a volunteer must complete six-hours of training.
One to One: Practicing Reading with Students is purposely designed to provide opportunities for:
- a struggling reader to practice reading and gain self-confidence
- a volunteer to have a relevant role that helps a student and a teacher
- a community to have impact on student achievement
Return on Investment: Since 2008, One to One has increased participation from 4 to 41 schools and provided support for 1,900 students. Data show that 88% of the students coached have made continuous progress in reading achievement.
Now more than ever. it is is imperative that even more students are reached to ensure that each child is reading proficiently by third grade.
