American Graduate: Summer Slide
In our continuing partnership with the American Graduate program, HearSay will periodically address key issues that hinder some students from successfully graduating from high school. On today's installment, Cathy Lewis is joined by local educators who are engaging area students in an attempt to halt what is known as the "summer slide," a term used to describe students forgetting what they learned the previous year over the course of summer vacation. We learn what techniques they're employing to keep students learning all year long.
