How to Use this Site | 123Read&Write



With regards to education, being literate is arguably the most important academic skill to possess. So, what is literacy? Simply put, literacy is the ability to read and write. Give the concept some thought. Within the educational field, while all academics are very important (in fact many would argue that mathematics is at the top of the list); with the inability to read, one would not be able to understand what the various mathematical equations may be asking of them. The ability to read has further benefits, as well. A good reader usually conincides with a good writer, and often times . . . a good speaker, as well. 

123READANDWRITE is dedicated to providing educational reading and writing strategies to improve the skills of any reading level. Soon, the site will also provide comprehension tests for popular books for reading levels K - 12th grade.
