SCARCE Provides Books for Home

"SCARCE not only provides reading material that is interesting and at the right reading level for our students who are new to the United States, but we are able to send books home with students. There is substantial reading research that shows reading growth occurs when we provide these students reading material for their home. Without SCARCE this research based practice would not be able to happen with these middle school students."
