Literacy Ready – Three Years of Evidence

Publication March 201910 pages19v06w

This study examines three years of data collected from 15 schools in three states that implemented Literacy Ready.

As part of SREB’s suite of Readiness courses, Literacy Ready was designed to help seniors master literacy skills before transitioning from high school to postsecondary education and the workplace and avoid costly remediation at the postsecondary level.

In Literacy Ready, seniors strengthen their critical thinking and communication skills by developing and defending ideas from texts in diverse disciplinary areas and writing about those ideas at the level of college course work.
