Optimizing Literacy Growth with Middle and High School Learners
Motivation to read drops the longer students are in school, and literacy growth flatlines in later grades.
This session will address the unique challenges of guiding ongoing literacy growth for middle and high school readers. We will explore the critical role of background knowledge in reading comprehension and proficiency. You will also learn best practices to incorporate content-area reading into all subjects, as well as practical methods to include reading and writing across the curriculum.
