The "Summer Slide" is a term thrown around a lot in education - the dreaded loss of math and reading learning during the long summer break. Now there's a new concern - the "COVID Slide." School closures and community shutdowns have researchers thinking we will see a drastic decline in student learning and retention.
The Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) has shown that students often lose between 2 weeks to 2 months of learning due to the long summer break. Mathematics is one of the hardest hit subjects, and depending on grade, a student can lose up to half their potential academic growth. Economic, family or educational vulnerabilities add further risk, and 4th and 5th graders appear to be the most heavily impacted because their material is critically foundational for advanced topics.
COVID-19 has had and continues to have a severe impact on our schools is likely to have its own unique and negative impacts on our students' learning. Coupled with the Summer Slide in June and July, students will face a high risk of drastic learning loss. So how can you fight the COVID and Summer Slides and keep your student growing, learning and succeeding?
