Rigorous Reading: Building Strength and Stamina

Tuesday, September 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Rigorous Reading

Presented by Dr. Douglas Fisher, Professor of Educational Leadership at San Diego State University
Sponsored by Achieve3000

Performance on any high-stakes measure of reading, whether it be a state-level summative assessment, a college entrance examination, or instructions for rescuing a computer hard drive, requires both reading strength and reading stamina. For students, these skills don’t just appear suddenly. Rather, they are attributes that have to be built and reinforced over time.

In this webinar, Dr. Douglas Fisher led an exploration of the types of learning that ensure students become better readers who persevere through complex (strength) or long (stamina) texts while thinking critically about what the author is saying and what they believe to be true.

Topics included:

  •  The importance of building reading stamina with text matched to a student’s individual reading level
  • Strategies for building reading strength with complex, grade-level texts and teacher-led direct instruction
  • The role of vocabulary development, and how knowledge of academic and cross-disciplinary terms impact reading ability
  • How extending literacy instruction to the content areas equips students to succeed across the entire curriculum

All PreK-12+ educators and administrators interested in improving student literacy outcomes are invited to watch this engaging webinar.
