Providing Reading Interventions for Students in Grades 4–9: What the IES Guide and Research Tell Us

If you have intermediate and secondary students who are still not reading accurately and fluently with good comprehension, this useful presentation is a hands-on learning experience just for you.

Join us for this thorough webinar when Dr. Anita Archer will review the major recommendations of the Educator’s Practice Guide recently released by the Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences.

The guide’s recommendations include:

  1. Building students’ decoding skills so they can read complex multisyllabic words
  2. Providing purposeful fluency-building activities
  3. Utilizing several research-validated comprehension practices


Join us as Dr. Archer discusses the recommendations and helps you gain insight into the research about reading intervention for older struggling readers.
