Description: Cutting Edge Reading & Writing Techniques for Teachers
Research Update: Teaching Implications for Struggling Readers in Elementary and Middle School with Links to Common Core State Standards
This interactive two-day Workshop is designed for in-service teachers who, as life-long learners, are interested in staying abreast of current research findings in the field of literacy instruction.
The goal of the Workshop is to provide participants with knowledge and practice with reading and writing interventions designed for improving the skills of students in elementary and middle school classrooms.
Participants will come away with a broader understanding of how to differentiate instruction effectively for the struggling readers and writers in their classrooms, including those whose primary language is not English. Additionally, the Workshop will provide participants a diagnostic framework for assessing the efficacy of their interventions and planning future instruction, and allow them the opportunity to relate instructional interventions to the Common Core State Standards.
This Workshop will be divided into four sessions focusing on critical literacy skills: word recognition, vocabulary, comprehension (including content area comprehension), and the relationship between close reading and writing.

➢ General education classroom teachers
➢ Special education teachers
➢ Academic intervention specialists
➢ Reading and learning specialists
