Literacy is essential for success in school, but when students at the middle and high school levels continue to struggle with reading, the consequences can be lifelong. Struggling adolescent readers are more likely to have discipline or behavioral issues, to have lower academic achievement overall and to drop out of school. Many districts don’t offer reading specialists or targeted support at the middle and high school levels, focusing on other priorities because the common perception is that it’s too late to help students’ reading skills by the time they reach adolescence.

But it’s not too late to make a difference for these students. Attend this web seminar to learn practical, research-based strategies for supporting struggling adolescent readers from renowned literacy expert, researcher and author Louisa Moats, and the director of exceptional education in the Henrico County Public Schools. Our presenters will discuss proven strategies, and a blended ELA learning solution called LANGUAGE! Live®, to intervene and turn struggling readers into successful readers, while supporting all learners and helping them achieve reading success.

Every registrant who attends the entire webinar on March 22 will be entered into a drawing for one teacher spot in the summer 2017 JASON Learning’s Argonaut Program. The winner can distribute the teacher spot to anyone within their school or district.
