Fall 2012 Webinar Series
Dates: November 5, 12 and 26
Time: 3:45 - 5:45 pm AST

These webinars focus on instructional practices that may be required to help many students maintain or increase grade-level reading skills through 12th grade.

The six essential areas of growth in knowledge, reading, and thinking skills for grades 6 to 12 are reading fluency, vocabulary knowledge, content knowledge, higher-level reasoning and thinking skills, cognitive strategies specific to reading comprehension, and motivation and engagement.

While some students with serious reading difficulties will probably require instructional support in areas beyond strong vocabulary and comprehension instruction,(e.g., word-identification strategies), they will also require high quality instruction and significant practice in the areas described above if they are to close the gap toward grade-level reading skills.

In this session, we will address those practices and essential areas of instruction for providing support for secondary students.

Target Audience:  Secondary educators and administrators
