Accelerate Struggling Readers

Objective

To provide tools, strategies and processes for supporting struggling readers so that more students achieve the adequate yearly progress benchmark.

Format

A one-day workshop for a small- or large-group setting (25 to 100 participants). Delivered in either a hands-on or lecture format, depending on client need.

Who Attends

Principals, assistant principals, teachers, reading specialists and reading coaches.

Participants Learn to

  • Use classroom-based strategies for accelerating the learning of at-risk readers.
  • Identify appropriate strategies to improve learning and achievement for all students.

Research Base

Leaders in literacy research—such as Connie Juel, Marilyn Jager Adams and Catherine Snow—have confirmed that students who are not reading at grade level by the end of third grade have little chance of becoming proficient readers without specific interventions. This research is further supported by the work of the National Reading Panel and its 2000 report, Teaching Children to Read: An Evidence-Based Assessment of the Scientific Research Literature on Reading and Its Implications for Reading Instruction.
