From Frustration to Freedom: Remedial Reading Re-Imagined

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation aims to bring educators into the shoes of an adolescent striving reader.
Participants will explore the challenges students face when struggling to comprehend and
consider how students can use their strengths to grow areas of need. Through the stories of
multiple districts' implementation of a literacy intervention program, participants can see how
they might (re) design their approach to engage learners, accelerate growth, and foster identity
change for so many struggling learners. As an added bonus, the "hottest reads" for adolescent
readers will be highlighted.
