Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting!
The purpose of Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting! is to mentor kids in Los Angeles in writing and reading. They work closely with schools, so that teachers handpick the students who need their help the most. Each year, Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting!:
• Teaches children how to write a story with their own ideas
• Brings out the creativity in kids with fun imagination games
• Provides mentors to help children write their own stories
• Helps children read their story out loud in front of a group
• Gives kids the opportunity to read their own creative stories in front their families and friends at a bookstore.
• According to the California Department of Education, only 41% of LAUSD
students are proficient in Language Arts (reading/writing)
• Research has shown that students who are not reading and writing at
grade level by the 3rd grade fall further and further behind their
classmates, and rarely ever catch up. (The Annie E. Casey Foundation)
• Furthermore, the numbers have shown that 50-80% of these children who can’t
read or write eventually drop out of high school, are unemployed, commit
crimes, or join gangs. (The Washington Literacy Council)
• Several states actually base their future prison building plans on these
numbers. That’s how accurate they are!
We are hoping by reaching these children now, they won’t become a part of these statistics.
