What do upper elementary teachers know about teaching reading to struggling readers? What else should they know? And how can we help them to build this knowledge? This presentation shares the results of a mixed methods study that investigated upper elementary teacher knowledge for teaching reading to struggling readers. As a result of analyses from both a survey and semi-structured interviews, this study begins to fill the gap in the research literature on this type of knowledge among the upper elementary teacher population.
