SIZZLE!® is a seven-week summer reading skills program for low-income, at-risk children in grades K-5 from the Easton Area School District.
Reading skills are fundamental to children’s success in all school subjects. SIZZLE!®, a trademarked program of ProJeCt, helps children learn to read so that they are empowered to “read to learn,” allowing them to advance in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and other subject areas. The program was created to address the “summer slide” of learning loss by providing a high-quality, developmentally-appropriate summer academic intervention.
The goal of the program is to increase or maintain reading scores. To meet this goal, SIZZLE!® provides children with evidence-based reading instruction taught by certified teachers. This instruction provides an invaluable opportunity for at-risk children to improve their reading skills and enter the next school year confidently reading at or above grade level.
