*Literacy is being able to read and write to your age and ability level.
*Nationally, literacy rates have decreased dramatically over the past 10 years....Translation: Kids are not reading at their grade level and are falling behind.
*Kids read on average only 7-8 minutes a day (texts, emails, or short phrases on signs)
*Research shows us that kids that do not read regularly for at least 20 minutes a day fall behind in school every year.
*Freshmen in college are being put into remedial English classes to learn how to read and write well enough to survive college classes.
*In order to stop this from happening we are using this STAR test to identify students that need extra help...Do you want to be a literacy statistic?
Your results on this STAR test will decide whether or not you need to be in AIS English.
