Sometimes you need to look through the eyes of a child to gain new insights into the world around you. The goal of this edWebinar is to do just that: look through the eyes of students who struggle to read in order to better understand what they need most from their school.
This edWebinar will take an insightful look into what struggling readers know they need but can’t always explain. Administrators will gain an understanding of how their students feel and will learn practical ways to support their academic and social-emotional development.
Some things struggling readers wish administrators knew are:
- You see low test scores, but I’m really smart
- You may see poor behavior reports, but I’m just trying to cope with the feeling of helplessness
- You see that I’m missing a lot of school, but I’m overwhelmed and embarrassed and it’s easy to skip school
This edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school district and school leaders, teachers, and librarians. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
