Accelerating Readers Gr3 and Above

The Southern Indiana Education Center is happy to welcome April Connelly from INcompassing Education to facilitate this session. Students who have yet to meet grade level expectations need intense prescriptive interventions to accelerate their growth. This professional learning opportunity for teachers, special education teachers, interventionists, and leaders will specifically address students in grades three (3) and above who need targeted reading interventions. During this session we will identify some of the critical components necessary to accelerate readers to grow and start to close the gap.

Participants will answer two critical questions: What are the best ways to accelerate students who are striving to master decoding in the upper grades? How do I best support readers who are calling words, but lack the ability to discuss and demonstrate understanding? Participants will have time to reflect on current practices and programs, collaborate with colleagues, and determine where adjustments might be needed. See more information and the embedded registration below!
