Students who are reading below grade level in grades 3 through 5 face increasing challenges as texts become more complex, reading demands increase in other content areas, and writing becomes a means for assessment in all subject areas. Participants in this session will learn about best practices in addressing the literacy needs of struggling readers in the intermediate grades through intensive, focused instruction, maximizing the use of assessments, and strategies and resources to support student learning across the curriculum areas. Areas of focus for this session will include teaching for strategic problem-solving, word study, comprehending complex text, content area reading and writing strategies and using assessments for progress monitoring.
Participants will learn about research-based best practices for improving the reading and writing proficiency of students who struggle with reading and writing in grades 3-6.
