Reading: Struggling Students

Instructional Strategies to Maximize Achievement for Struggling Readers K-6


An effective literacy program must be grounded in a responsive, differentiated view that is inclusive of all students. Meeting the needs of struggling readers is not about doing something 'else' – often a diluted form of instruction based on isolated skill and drill. Our struggling readers must be immersed in the very instructional approaches that are afforded our most proficient readers. Mary will share powerful instructional strategies that give struggling readers the "more" they need – more intensity, more depth, more support and more acceleration. Learn how to build strategic knowledge in ways that ensure transfer of learning with powerful approaches that can be integrated across the curriculum tomorrow morning. You will leave this session with a new sense and an instructional toolbox filled to brimming in this strategy rich session.
