We are entrusted with creating opportunities for all students to achieve their highest potential. Anyone can relate to this basic need: to be understood for our abilities, not categorized by our challenges. Let’s defy the stereotypes and see students for their potential, not their inability to read; let’s empower each teacher to change lives; let’s recognize each district for its ability to build a better literacy program.

Attend this web seminar to learn research-based, district-level strategies for fostering literacy. Our presenters will share how they built an adolescent reading program that empowers educators and students alike.

Topics will include:

  • Proven strategies for turning struggling adolescent readers into successful readers
  • The importance of improving overall school readiness and foundational language arts skills
  • Ways to meet district literacy improvement goals
