Even before the pandemic, the number of students reading below grade level was growing. While reading difficulties compound over time and impact academic performance in all subject areas, older students CAN still develop strong literacy skills.

You’ll dive into what’s needed for upper elementary through high school students to overcome reading difficulties.

You’ll learn:

  • Why the science of reading is important for teaching older students
  • Profiles of reading difficulty experienced by older students
  • The role of assessment, high-quality materials, and professional learning in helping striving readers become successful
  • How to use data to pinpoint specific skill gaps and provide targeted instruction and intervention
