Accelerating The Progress of Readers Experiencing Difficulties

This research based interactive in-service 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. Links to memory, personalized learning and the new curriculum will be made throughout the presentation. Drawing on leading educational research, some schools are reconsidering their delivery modes for pull-out and in-class intervention models for at-risk readers. In an interactive manner, the presenter will model and describe how a daily, strategically-based reading intervention can make a positive difference with vulnerable students. Participants will be provided with opportunities to practice and experience how to teach in a manner that facilitates strategic activity. The ideas presented will be applicable to both learning support and regular classroom teachers. This presentation will answer the question "What is possible for students experiencing difficulties in reading?" as of September 27, 2011 to June 22, 2016, 104 students who were below grade level in reading reached the average band of instruction.
