We’ve all heard the phrase “Equitable Access,” but does everyone in your school or district truly understand what that means, including you? The difference between equality and equity is often confusing, not to mention knowing what to do in order to provide the equity that struggling readers need in the classroom. This edWebinar helps you understand more about what equitable access in reading means for students that have reading deficits, and how it can help you close the achievement gap. We compare what the research says should be happening in classrooms versus what is most likely taking place, and explore strategies that explore grouping, when to provide leveled content or grade-level content, and more.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
