How Professional Learning About the Science of Reading Can Support Adolescent Students
We know that 95% of students can learn how to read when using instruction and programs based on the science of reading, yet we are still facing a growing literacy crisis. As students move from elementary school to middle and high school, many do not have the foundational decoding and comprehension skills they need to read to learn. Meg Van Voorhis, director of professional learning at Lexia®, addresses these issues in her webinar, “How Professional Learning About the Science of Reading Can Support Adolescent Students.”
Along with a discussion around the importance of the science of reading in professional learning, Van Voorhis also participates in a Q&A where she answers questions about implementing effective literacy instruction in the classroom, provides recommendations for resources designed to support adolescent learners, and discusses best practices to help teachers and students succeed.
