Oct 25, 2018 10:00am ‐ Oct 25, 2018 11:00am


Description

This session addresses the importance of teacher knowledge and how our own knowledge impacts student reading achievement. Research continues to demonstrate that many teachers are not adequately prepared to provide systematic reading instruction. This session describes a new online professional-development curriculum, the Mindplay Comprehensive Reading Course. This in-depth course is designed to enhance teacher knowledge of scientifically based reading instruction and includes videos of literacy experts and classroom demonstrations.

Learning Objectives:

  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine effective practices for teaching specific language comprehension strategies for the students who are struggling with reading.
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine the conditions under which teachers can learn and apply understandings of language and literacy to more effective instruction of “at risk” students.
