Accelerating The Progress of Readers Experiencing Difficulties
This presentation will answer the question, "What is possible for students experiencing difficulties in reading?". It offers an in depth inquiry into the wide range of strategies Paul employs with reluctant and struggling readers. This research based, interactive workshop is designed for Elementary/Middle School learning support and classroom teachers. Participants will develop an understanding of how restructuring and rethinking programming and teaching practices for struggling readers and writers can lead to accelerated reading gains for at-risk students. In an interactive manner, the presenter will model and describe how a daily short-term strategically based reading intervention can make a positive difference with vulnerable students. The ideas presented will be applicable to both learning support and regular classroom teachers. Plan to attend both sections to get the most out of this workshop.
