She will provide you with proven intervention strategies in reading for your students from diverse backgrounds.These ideas will give you fresh resolve and powerful approaches to meeting the needs of your students as you differentiate reading instruction. You will gain new insights as you hear and see demonstrations modeling the interventions needed to support your ELL students before they fall too far behind.

Judy will share classroom-proven and intervention ideas to actively engage K-6 English language learners having difficulty with reading and writing. You will learn ready-to-use methods for teaching the most effective comprehension strategies, vocabulary techniques, interactive phonics appropriate to each grade level, and fluency. You will be able to pick and choose which literacy interventions to use with whole groups or small groups as part of your RTI framework.

A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

We are all impacted by the growing number of students for whom English is their second language. In 1990, they were one in 20 public school students. Ten years later the ratio is 1 in 9 and demographers estimate in 20 years it might be 1 in 4. Let’s move past the problems and spend a day focusing on solutions based on the Response to Intervention framework. We can narrow the achievement gap in our classrooms and school-wide with research-based literacy strategies that differentiate lessons for our English learners … And Response to Intervention offers a powerful approach for ensuring that all our English language learners are successful.

I will share proven ideas based on the RTI model that will make best use of your precious time and staff resources. I have used them myself as a K-6 classroom teacher and everything I share will be practical and easy to implement because I will model how to do them, give you materials that are ready to use and show many strategies with classroom videos. This seminar is designed to provide you with practical strategies and activities that are both classroom‑based and research-driven … Who has time for any lessons that aren’t best practices? I want you to have the opportunity to pick and choose the strategies and methods that will work best with YOUR second language students in YOUR school.

Please join me for a day to reaffirm the powerful teaching you already do with English learners and add strategies, lessons and tools within the RTI framework that will make it all fit together. I promise you a fast-paced day with effective ways to help struggling ELL readers in your core curriculum and RTI interventions. You will walk away with dozens of useful and adaptable techniques to make all your English language learners successful. I can’t wait to meet you!

Sincerely,
Judy Lynch
