The Wonderful World of Words: Help Struggling Readers Connect with the World of Words and Reading
Thursday, Jan. 17 at 2 p.m. Eastern Time
Presented by Terrie Noland, Vice President, Educator Initiatives, Learning Ally
Words flood our world each and every day. We use words to navigate, to communicate and to share knowledge. For struggling readers, words can be a thief: a thief that sneaks in and isolates students from classroom discourse and from the rich, deep knowledge that is contained in the pages of a book.
In this edWebinar, the following information will be shared to help restore the connection between words and struggling readers:
- Why reading is so hard for struggling readers
- The importance of word exposure and what it means for lifelong success
- When to use words at a student’s decoding level and when to use words at their cognitive level
- How to bring the right words to students that inspire continued learning
This session will benefit K-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
