Addressing the Needs of Struggling Readers (Webinars)


Webinar Video: Teaching foundational reading skills


Presented December 11, 2019 by Claire Hayes, Read Naturally Educational Consultant.

Standards define what foundational reading skills students should be able to do (K-5), but standards do not tell teachers how to teach. Learn the predictors of reading success and how to implement Read Naturally’s research-based strategies to accelerate reading development.
