Course Description:

This comprehensive instructional course provides educators and administrators proven methods to teach struggling students to become more motivated and successful readers. 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 is to support teachers by helping teachers identify what causes readers to struggle and what they can do to help struggling readers be more successful in the classroom.  Teachers will learn how to help struggling readers develop fluent reading patterns, expand their vocabulary and learn to self-monitor their own reading comprehension.  The course will also help teachers understand how to promote effective reading techniques such as text annotation, mental imagery, synthesis and summarization and peer supported reading practices. Teachers will also explore how linking reading and writing supports developing and struggling readers to become strategic and focused 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.
