In America’s schools, many of our youngest learners are falling behind in reading. As educators, it is imperative to quickly identify a student who is struggling and help them before they fall too far behind. In this insightful and applicable webinar,

school, and beyond. We will discuss research-based practices and intervention methods, as well as:

Many Students who struggle to learn to read often quickly fall behind in achievement and grade level, setting them up for a lifetime of difficulty and frustration. Low-income, ELLs, and SPED students are often at the greatest risk. Is this the child’s
fault and problem to conquer, or should California be preparing its teachers with different skills?

Catching literacy issues early is the key to creating lifelong readers; Early Childhood Educators are the first line of offense. Early identification and early literacy intervention are key to improving student outcomes, but the truth is—many educators
do not graduate from college equipped with the tools they need to address the literacy learning challenges these students face. This eye-opening presentation will explore this problem as well as solutions and will share strategies that can be used
immediately in the classroom to facilitate young students’ literacy learning.
How does the information in the recently updated Texas Dyslexia handbook impact the identification of and instruction for students with dyslexia? What do our teachers need to know to have the greatest impact with all students, including those with dyslexia?
What are the requirements for educators who teach students with dyslexia?
Join Toni Backstrom, national education consultant, as she shares insight and valuable tips about the new dyslexia instructional requirements and what they mean for your teachers.
Millions of American students do not read at even a basic level for their grade. Students often fall behind to the extent that they are recommended for interventions or assessed as having a learning disability, when in fact, the problem is they
did not receive adequate and appropriate reading instruction. The truth is—and research proves this—that effectively teaching reading is a science in and of itself, and teachers need proper training.
If educators are prepared to teach all five essential components of literacy instruction (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension) the result is higher student success rates.
Myths and misconceptions have long been part of our educational system. When it comes to the instruction targeting the English learner, the same holds true. However, as research is published that focuses on culturally and linguistically diverse students,
the more we know about what is true and, simply, what is not. . . and how we can better serve these students and proliferate their potential.
Join these three experienced educators as they share what works when it comes to getting young learners to enjoy writing—and helping them learn to do it well!
With an emphasis on advancing literacy and getting kids to love all kinds of writing, Shannon McClintock Miller, Tracy Ferguson, and Kate Lamoureux will share what they’ve learned over the years, including strategies, apps, best practices, and proven
resources to transform unengaged K-4th graders into motivated and excited learners who love to write.
You’ll leave the webinar with new ideas and tools to try, and engaging and meaningful strategies to inspire a true love of writing.
There is a common tendency today to link higher math standards for our students with the kind of achievement we see in other countries. A complementary thread is to link high standards in math to the broad trends in our ever-changing, information
economy. High school students with only a basic understanding of mathematics don’t stand a chance against machines. High standards proponents commonly refer to our marquee industries such as finance, information technology, engineering,
and biomedicine to reinforce the idea that mathematics is a gateway to a successful career. By implication, we need to ensure all students are proficient in this discipline. But, is this the case?
Join this enlightening, informative discussion with Dr. John Woodward, author of TransMath, as he explores what kind of mathematical preparation today’s students need to be successful in life.
Join us for this infomative webinar presented by Andrea Samadi, a former classroom teacher and education specialist, who will share ideas to help struggling readers skyrocket literacy in the classroom. "Are You Using These Nine Brain-Aligned Strategies?"
will focus on some of the most common hurdles students face at the intermediate/advanced level with reading acquisition.
As a consequence of advocacy, many states have now adopted laws pertaining the identification and treatment of dyslexia. While recognition of dyslexia is long overdue, conflicts between scientific evidence and popular beliefs continue to complicate implementation
of these well-intentioned laws. Dr. Louisa Moats, author and nationally recognized literacy expert, will address quandaries such as the definition of dyslexia, appropriate criteria for identification, teacher preparation, and selection and use of
