Important early reading data and concrete tips for how to turn around reading performance

Amplify’s latest middle-of-year data confirm it: the pandemic is putting more kids at risk of not learning to read.

Students are falling behind in all grades, but especially in Grades K and 1. Research suggests a near 90 percent chance that a student who struggles with reading in Grade 1 will continue to struggle unless we intervene to close this opportunity gap. 

But the more we know about these learning losses, the better we can plan to address them. That’s why Amplify’s new research report not only reveals the scope and specifics of the problem, but also provides guidance on how schools and districts can overcome it. Our research report includes actionable insights from Susan Lambert, chief academic officer of elementary humanities at Amplify and host of Science of Reading: The Podcast
