Improving Reading for Older Students – Two Concrete Approaches
David Liben, Meredith Liben
This session will consist of two parts, each offering a system for supporting older students who are reading years behind grade level. First, research-based but lightweight supports will be explored that can be done during Tier One classroom instruction. These approaches can be implemented by teachers in any grade using Tier One instructional materials in ways that effectively bring more of their students into grade level learning. The second part of the presentation will look at integrated supports that can be used in addition to Tier One classroom work but would require drawing on support staff in coherent, research based ways that serve older students reading years behind far more effectively.
