Presented by Nelda Reyes,
Dyslexia Interventionist, De Zavala Elementary, San Marcos CISD, TX

A year ago, Nelda Reyes, Dyslexia Interventionist at De Zavala Elementary, San Marcos CISD in Texas, attended an edWebinar presented by Kristy Mathieu titled “45 Ways to Support Struggling Readers,” and became inspired to make changes in her own classroom and school to embrace and promote a culture of learning and literacy for dyslexic students. Nelda soaked in the ideas and strategies that were shared and made swift changes to ensure that she planned with dyslexic students in mind, attending to their academic, social and emotional needs.

Now in her own edWebinar, Nelda shares some of the ideas that helped create an atmosphere of reading and literacy at her school.

5 Things to Give Up So Your Struggling Readers Won’t

Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time

Presented by BeLinda Martin
Fifth Grade Reading/ELA Teacher

With each new school year comes a new class of students. Students that you may not know personally and have only heard about from colleagues. You might spend the summer anxious about how you are going to address the vast levels of reading proficiency of your incoming students. This was the case for BeLinda Martin. Of the incoming class of fifth graders, only about half were reaching or exceeding levels of reading proficiency. BeLinda had to think differently than she had in her over 20 years of experience to address this gap in reading abilities. The first step in this journey was to give up. In this edWebinar, come and hear about BeLinda’s journey of giving up these practices and gaining so much more in return.
