STRUGGLING READERS

Topic: Reading/Literacy
Instructor: Jodi Slonaker

Sponsor: Teach n' Kids Learn, Inc.
Center Offered: OLPD

Course Description:

Every day in classrooms across the country we run into students who struggle to read and must find the strategies that we can implement to help these struggling readers succeed. This course provides an understanding of why students struggle with reading, what barriers prevent students from becoming more fluent and efficient readers and what teachers can do to help struggling students become more effective readers and writers.

 The focus of this course will be to support teachers by helping identify what causes readers to struggle and what they can do to help struggling readers be more successful in their classroom. Teachers will learn how to help struggling readers develop fluent reading patterns, expand their vocabulary and learn to self-monitor their reading comprehension.

 We will address helping to identify what causes readers to struggle and what they can be done to help struggling readers be more successful using practical instructional strategies. We will work together in helping struggling readers develop fluent reading patterns, expand their vocabulary and learn to self-monitor their own reading comprehension. The course will also promote effective reading techniques such as text annotation, mental imagery, synthesis and summarization, and peer-supported reading practices. We also explore how linking reading and writing supports developing and struggling readers to become strategic and focused readers.

 This comprehensive instructional course provides educators and administrators proven methods to teach struggling students to become more motivated and successful readers.

 This interactive course is designed for job-embedded learning and practical classroom application using our virtual lesson study process. This virtual lesson study environment will help facilitate the process for teachers to better incorporate the instructional practices outlined within the English Language Arts Common Core State Standards.
