SLP...Yah...You Know Me!
"A synthesis of the research on summer learning loss that integrated 39 studies (including three Canadian studies) revealed that, when students’ standardized test scores from the fall are compared to their scores from the previous spring, summer learning loss is equivalent, on average, to at least one month of instruction."
-Canadian Council of Learning.
The Lit Maven read this and thought, "What about educators?"
