Show Notes

Today I am talking with my colleague and fellow State Early Literacy Specialist, Brandie Turner, about Summer Learning Loss and the projected effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic on those losses.

What to Listen for:

  • What is summer learning loss?
  • What effect does summer learning loss have on children during a typical year?
  • Which children lose more skills and knowledge during the summer months and why?
  • What experiences and support combat summer learning loss?
  • Based on research, what is the projected impact that the Covid-19 Pandemic will have on summer learning loss?
  • How is the Covid-19 Pandemic effecting the experiences and supports that combat summer learning loss?
  • How can teachers approach instruction at the start of the school year in order to accelerate students’ learning?

Even though it may seem like an overwhelming to task to overcome summer learning loss during an unexpected pandemic, this episode highlights why refining best teaching practices will help to accelerate student achievement and help to combat summer learning loss in years to come.
