Education Week Webinar Offers Advice on Teaching Literacy to At-Risk Students

If you didn't have a chance to tune in live, the webinar I hosted on helping at-risk students develop literacy skills is available for free download now (after a free registration). The webinar featured Peggy Coyne, a research scientist for the Center for Applied Special Technology in Wakefield, Mass., and Lori DiGisi, a curriculum coordinator for Framingham Public Schools in Massachusetts.

After the webinar, Lori wanted to point those interested in literacy instruction to the results of a new survey, "Remodeling Literacy Learning Together,"  conducted by the National Center for Literacy Education. The survey of more than 2,000 teachers found that many of them feel ill-prepared to teach the new literacy standards under the common core and that, while teachers most value time to work with their peers, the time allowed for such interactions is decreasing.
