Adolescent Literacy Solutions

This four-day course focuses on preparing educators to develop vocabulary knowledge for middle and high school students and teach comprehension strategies that work for both literary and informational text.

Academic Literacy Series (2 days)

  • Comprehension Strategies and Text Structure: Participants learn about current, validated research in comprehension instruction. They receive in-depth instruction in selected instructional techniques that have broad application in both narrative and informational text at all grade levels.

Intensive Intervention Series (2 days)

  • Science of Reading Overview and Decoding Instruction for Adolescents: The topics covered in these sessions include an overview of the Science of Reading, basic linguistics, phonics with an emphasis on multisyllabic word instruction.
  • Fluency Development: These sessions focus on instructional methods, based on the science of reading, for teaching students ot become fluent readers and spotlights the relationship between fluency and comprehension. Highlights include specific techniques to increase time on text and promote rereading.
