Consequence: Below Basic Reading Level G. 3

                                                                                                                                                            Thank-you Mayor Mike Rawlings for offering our youth in Dallas to get rewarded for reading.

Dallas Public Library June 2017 Updated Edition


      CIE Supports Dallas Mayor's Reading Challenge by sharing our Summer Reading Log WHY???  
                              Because reading at or above the basic reading level, especially by Grade 3 is an early predictor on how or why young adults are more likely to complete high school.  Also relates well to a better foot-hold in:   Employment Readiness. 
Below is a reading log we use with a neighbor to improve her reading level.  Share our log with others, a pdf is available on our: www.communityintegrated-e.com landing page.
