Elementary Reading Intervention Strategies
Presented by: Elaine McEwan-Adkins
Proactive reading instruction—in everything from phonics to comprehension—is required both to prevent problems with and to promote authentic literacy. This course offers elementary educators a research-based menu of reading intervention strategies that prepare educators to intervene immediately and effectively at the first signs of students’ struggles. The course equips educators with routines and activities that will make confident, able readers of all their students. Educators will learn proactive strategies to prevent literacy problems and be instructed on reading interventions that address existing literacy problems.
