F21 - A Study of Teacher Candidates’ Achievement, Early Reading and Math Experiences, and Reading Volume


Oct 26, 2018 3:15pm ‐ Oct 26, 2018 4:15pm

Standard: $20.00

Description

This session presents a study exploring academic achievement, self-reported early reading and math experiences, and reading volume in 100 teacher candidates after a state law eliminated the basic skills test requirements for educators. Results raise concerns about the ability of some teacher candidates to implement research-based recommendations for reading, writing, and math instruction. Implications for teacher education policy and students with dyslexia are discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine critical issues regarding the involvement of teachers in the implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI).
  • 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.

Disclosure: Louise Spear-Swerling and Yan Wei have no relevant financial or nonfinancial relationships to disclose.

Speaker(s):

  • Louise Spear-Swerling, Ph.D., Professor Emerita, Southern Connecticut State University
  • Yan Wei, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Special Education, Southern Connecticut State University
