Students who have yet to meet grade level expectations need support to accelerate their growth. This learning opportunity will specifically address students in grades 3 through 9 and how to help them close the reading gap. During this session we will identify some of the critical components necessary to accelerate readers. Participants will answer two critical questions: What are the best ways to accelerate students who are striving to master decoding in the upper grades? How do I best support readers who are calling words, but lack the ability to discuss and demonstrate understanding? Participants will have time to reflect on current practices and programs, collaborate with colleagues, and determine where adjustments might be needed.
