Reading Plus to Lead Session on Igniting Reading Gains in Middle and High School Students at the 2021 National Principals Conference
WINOOSKI, Vt., July 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reading Plus, an evidence-based online program that uses personalized instruction to improve students’ reading proficiency, today announced its presentation of “Building Lifelong Readers in Secondary School: How Schools Navigate Literacy Challenges to Raise Reading Achievement” at the virtual 2021 National Principals Conference. Reading Plus Chief Research Officer Janine Walker Caffrey and Community Manager La’Keisha Ciprian will lead the session, happening on July 15 at 2:20 p.m. ET.
“When people think of reading development, elementary-aged students often come to mind. However, secondary school educators face unique obstacles with literacy instruction,” said Walker Caffrey. “In a recent Reading Plus survey of middle and high school principals, a majority—over 60%—revealed that students reading significantly below grade level is their greatest challenge with reading development. It’s crucial for administrators to know that there are methods available to foster growth and engagement for all readers, no matter their current skill level.”
The 45-minute presentation will explore:
