Against all Odds! Now Is the Time to Prevent Reading Failure Based on Scientific Research

Monday February 8, 2021
2:45 - 4:15 PM
Workshop 2

How do we prepare our elementary students to read who are up against all odds facing poverty, second language barriers, mobility, little parent involvement as well as the onslaught of the COVID-19 Pandemic? There is a critical need for early identification of struggling readers and the provision of immediate targeted instruction and intervention to build foundational reading skills and knowledge. This session provides insight and builds leadership capacity on how to improve reading outcomes utilizing the Science of Reading, by implementing systems and structures proven to help overcome literacy barriers. I will provide understanding of how to put the RTI/MTSS process in motion, formulate an assessment plan and make data-based decisions to inform instruction. Find out how an incredibly low performing school significantly improved reading outcomes. Now is the time to innovate and create timely and urgent instructional strategies to prevent reading failure and create hope for the future!
