Struggling Readers & Writers

Helping Students in ALL Classes Grades 6-12

What do you do with the students in your classroom who are not reading and/or writing at grade level? How do you help these students meet the academic objectives for your class, while also helping them gain literacy skills? And how can this be done without feeling completely overwhelmed? This workshop will provide strategies and suggestions to answer these questions and also meet the needs of these students.

Beginning on January 20 at the Southern Indiana Education Center, Julie Monetta will lead the first of a 2-day workshop series. Participants should expect the following:

  • How to recognize specific areas of need with struggling students
  • Strategies to make content more comprehensible for struggling students
  • Specific strategies for reading and writing assistance
  • Networking and sharing successes and concerns with colleagues.

Julie will be drawing from the research and work of Serravallo, Gallagher, Calkins, and many others to provide plenty of guidance for session participants. Please join us for two helpful and important days for grade 6-12 teachers of ALL content areas!
