Building Blocks for Teaching Adolescents with Reading Difficulties


This online professional development is designed to enhance teachers’ knowledge and skills so they can effectively teach adolescent students who struggle with reading. This professional development consists of a series of resources with videos that demonstrate how to teach reading and spelling skills to struggling adolescent readers. The resources are organized so that later lessons build upon earlier ones. The series can be used as a set of sequential lessons or separately to address the particular needs of students.
