Teacher Training - Strategies for Teaching Reading
Empower Teachers to Empower Students
When teachers are initially trained prior to their professional career, they are given little instruction in how to teach basic literacy skills to beginning and struggling readers. This leaves a lot of students without the basic skills they need to succeed in education - especially students with processing issues, special needs, and English language learners (about 30% of all students). To help fill this gap, Reading Horizons offers a two-day training on basic literacy instructional strategies. This short and affordable training prepares and empowers teachers with the strategies they need to help any struggling reader that enters their classroom. This two-day training is designed to:
