The education organization I co-founded Latinas for Latino Lit (L4LL) has a summer reading program specifically designed to reach, teach, and engage Hispanic students. In case you missed it, we are doing a series of appearances on Univision's highly-rated national morning show Despierta América.
This summer, we are collaborating with Univision Educación in partnership with The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to promote explain the Common Core standards and the importance of summer reading to combat the so-called Summer Slide where during vacation students can lose up to 22% of what they learned during the school year.
