The hot topic we are hearing about all across education are the words, “decodable text,” and for good reason! Join Heggerty’s Marjorie Bottari, Director of Professional Development, and Literacy Specialist Erica Suarez to learn more about what decodable texts and leveled readers are, their purpose in different instructional settings, and how we can make informed instructional decisions using the resources we have. In this edWebinar, attendees will learn:

  • The difference between decodable texts and leveled readers
  • The purpose of decodable texts vs. leveled readers
  • The importance of utilizing resources within our classroom to best meet the needs of all learners

This edWebinar will be of interest to any teachers, reading specialists, literacy coaches, district leaders, and tutors who work with students in early reading. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation and free resources shared throughout.
