Practical Ideas and Strategies

In today’s classroom we often see more and more diversity in our students’ reading abilities. With more accountability being placed on the classroom teacher to deliver instruction at more rigorous levels, we need to help ALL students within the classroom achieve higher standards.

How can we help advanced readers acquire the skills they need to perform at a qualitatively different depth and pace in reading while providing appropriate, challenging lessons that scaffold instruction for struggling readers? How do we provide the strategies and structure for learners to work productively in small groups or independently? How can we balance the rigor of learning our required grade level standards with the interests and motivations of our individual students? If you have asked yourself any of these questions, you will not want to miss this NEW seminar.

Outstanding teacher and nationally recognized instructor Kay Law will share a wide variety of practical strategies that will maximize reading success for ALL your students. You’ll receive a wealth of practical differentiated reading techniques for teaching your students reading in a more purposeful and efficient way.

By creating depth and complexity within your reading instruction and a faster pace for students who demonstrate mastery of skills while scaffolding for students below grade level, you will have new tools that allow all of your readers to reach their full potential.

I look forward to sharing with you a wealth of practical ideas and strategies that can help you differentiate reading instruction for your intermediate students. We can help all students develop their unique talents and abilities and provide an environment conducive to the way they learn best, which will create success for each reader in our classrooms.
