Tom Kitchen [ website | twitter ] and I had the great honor of being asked to conduct a webinar for INFOhio on strategies and tech tools to support struggling readers in grades 6 through 12.
INFOhio provides an archive of the webinar you can view. Once you view the webinar, you can answer five questions to receive a certificate of completion.
A list of additional resources and links that were mentioned during the webinar is also available.
The structure and strategy recommendations were taken from a “Doing What Works” collection called “Adolescent Literacy”. That resource is no longer available online, but you can currently get the resources on CD. These are available for free, while supplies last, from WestEd. There are six 2-hour modules, and they can be used by individuals or groups to help plan strategies for improving adolescent literacy at your school.
This was my second time presenting in a webinar for INFOhio! The first was in April of 2013, as part of a “Web 2.0 Smackdown”. Five presenters each briefly demonstrated a great online tool, and you can still view that webinar as well! I demonstrated Popplet, which I also briefly mentioned in the Support Struggling Readers webinar.
