When students are identified as struggling readers in a tiered system of support (RTI/MTSS) process, it’s very easy to pull them out of the classroom to give them individualized instruction and support to address the gaps in their learning. However, this strategy keeps students away from class culture, away from important instruction and away from their friends—which can impact them socially.
In this edWebinar, Learning Ally’s Terrie Noland will explore:
- Specific accommodations and tools to support student’s right in the general education classroom
- Specific examples of how educators make the learning environment cohesive, yet differentiated, all at the same time
- Pacing and implementing lesson plans for a positive, powerful impact on struggling readers
There will be time to ask Terrie questions after her presentation. This session is designed for K-8 administrators, general education teachers and special education teachers, as well as school librarians. Join us to learn how to support struggling readers in their general education classroom alongside their peers!
