Do you have students that have potential trapped inside of them because they struggle to read? Are these students great thinkers and deep learners when they do get access to stories and content?
In this edWebinar, hear the research that explains why stories can have a physical impact on the brain, and how—when struggling readers are exposed to stories through strategies that make use of digital literacy and other alternative approaches—moments of deep learning and engagement can have transformational impacts on students.
This presentation will equip you to unleash the potential of transformational change for your students that need reading accommodations, so you can make sure no child leaves your classroom or school with words and knowledge trapped inside of them.
This edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
