Research has shown that the better your vocabulary, the better your chances at succeeding in your studies. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to keep a good dictionary at hand and actually USE it. Learning to use the dictionary not only helps students become better readers but also ensures that they understand complex text, academic discussions, and all conversations to help them become college and career ready.
Unfortunately some students don’t have the “luxury” of having a dictionary available at school, much less own one themselves.
The Students as at Lighthouse College Preparatory Academy in Gary, IN are in desperate need of dictionaries…They are eager to learn and better themselves through education. ‘s The School’s Board of Directors is actually matching every dollar up to $100 for the next 7 days. If you can help put, please donate by November 29, 2013 and use the promo code INSPIRE during checkout to double your donation. Please help the Students as Lighthouse College Preparatory achieve their academic goals by contributing to their book project today!
