Teachers of struggling adolescent readers often find that their students are willing to do anything BUT read and write. Getting students to believe that they can make meaningful progress—when all prior experience suggests they will not—and to work at something that has never been rewarding is a major challenge.

In this webinar Louisa Moats, Ed.D., and Sheryl Ferlito, Ed.S., discuss using relevance and success as strategies to motivate unengaged adolescents to seek and obtain achievement in reading. Drs. Moats and Ferlito are the lead author and contributing author, respectively, of LANGUAGE!® Live, a blended program for adolescent students reading below grade level.


Louisa Moats is a teacher, psychologist, researcher and distinguished author of many influential books on the topics of reading, spelling, language, and teacher preparation.

Sheryl Ferlito is a Special Services Learning Consultant for Chippewa Valley Schools in Clinton Township, MI.
