Learning to read is a foundational skill and an essential building block in a child's education and development. Due to COVID-19, we have more kids than ever behind in reading. According to a recent article by the New York Times, almost a third of children are missing significant reading benchmarks, leaving them unprepared to move on in school and setting them behind in nearly every subject. Our children need easy-to-use reading resources now!
The program consists of online videos that introduce children to new concepts and help them to understand difficult topics through fun examples and exercises. The Reading HQ strives to make reading engaging and fun as well as instructional and practical.
How to implement The Reading HQ at your school.

The Reading HQ offers a school plan that allows the teacher access to all levels and materials at only $199 for the year. The cost for each student is only $79 for their personal reading materials. This plan allows for the teacher to easily adjust the program level for each student and to use one subscription for multiple students at different levels if necessary.

Martin Luther King Jr. often used biblical references in his speeches to appeal to the moral and religious values of his audience. For example, in his "I Have a Dream" speech, he quoted the Old Testament when he said, "I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together." This quote comes from the book written by the prophet Isaiah.
