Striving readers are students who are currently reading below grade level and need an extra boost to help them catch up with the rest of their class. This might also include English learners, students affected by the summer slide, and readers who are stagnant at their current reading level and need help building reading confidence. Striving readers sometimes get discouraged as they strive to find books that engage them.
Small group instruction is an optimal way for teachers to support striving readers while keeping them in the classroom reading community. The intimate setting allows teachers to work closely with a group of students reading at approximately the same level or with the same skill needs to effectively and continuously evaluate reading, diagnose challenges, and support new reading skills and growth.
Participants will leave this edWebinar with an understanding of:
- Who are striving readers and different ways they can scaffold their learning
- Reading phases and stages needs across elementary grades and common spots where students get stuck
- Using MTSS to support striving readers at every level
- Connecting small group and independent learning
This edWebinar will be of value to elementary through junior high school teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
