When students can make sense of words, then they learn, grow and succeed. But, getting to this point can be a struggle when students need to overcome reading challenges. Studies have shown that if students learn strategies for unlocking multisyllabic words and academic vocabulary with fluency and confidence, then they will achieve long-term results.

Attend this web seminar to learn some research-based strategies that are effective with all struggling readers, whether they are English language learners, students with reading disabilities, or students who have simply fallen behind.

Our presenters will include renowned literacy expert, author and school district consultant Anita Archer, as well as two special education leaders, who will discuss how student achievement has improved dramatically in their districts with the help of a short-term intervention solution called REWARDS®, which helps students to learn new skills and build confidence all the way to graduation.

Scheduled speakers:

Anita Archer

Literacy instruction expert, author and consultant

Heidi Beverine-Curry

Special Education Literacy Coach

West Genesee School District (N.Y.)

Diane Vautrot

Special Education Coordinator

Gilmer County Charter School System (Ga.)

Who will benefit: Administrators interested in supporting struggling readers. Anyone may attend.
