2018 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

T23 - Moving the Needle in the Lufkin School District—Reading by Third Grade Regardless of Zip Code

Oct 25, 2018 2:15pm ‐ Oct 25, 2018 3:15pm


Description

This presentation investigates a mid-size district that transformed a critical mass of students reading below grade level to performing at a Tier 1 level of reading. This goal was accomplished through teaching structured literacy daily to students in grades K through 2. Not only did students gain in their reading skills, but teachers learned how to teach the science of reading, and administrators learned how important it was to become literacy leaders. Formative data will be used to demonstrate growth over time.

Learning Objective:

  • MULTISENSORY STRUCTURED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION: Recognize the nature of dyslexia and related language learning disabilities and the role of multisensory structured language instruction (MSL).

Speaker(s):

  • Regina Boulware-Gooden, Ph.D., Vice President of Academic Planning and Research, Neuhaus Education Center
  • Tracy Weeden, Ed.D., President and CEO, Neuhaus Education Center
