This 15-hour course provides middle school and high school educators (reading specialists, SLP’s, classroom teachers, special educators, and administrators) with a framework for understanding the varied reading needs of adolescents, and strategies for delivering appropriate, comprehensive, and differentiated instruction within Tiers 1 and 2.
By the end of the course, you'll be able to:
- Demonstrate research-based knowledge of the reading skills and knowledge that adolescent learners need to acquire in order to be successful in middle and high school.
- Design appropriate and targeted intervention for identified struggling students.
- Use a science/research-based framework to develop benchmark monitoring systems to identify learners with reading deficits.
- Use Universal Design for Learning (UDL) among other approaches to appropriately differentiate instruction within a general education classroom.
Graduate credits are not included in the cost of tuition and can be arranged for an additional fee. Please email Project Manager, Hannah Lim, [email protected] to learn more.
