When Readers Struggle

Over the past few weeks, we have had over 500 teachers and administrators attend various institutes we have offered on the topic of struggling readers. It was so exciting to see so many educators explore this topic with our faculty. Linda Garbus, one of our adjunct faculty members from the grades K-3 institute, put together a short summary of some resources for educators who are interested in learning more on this topic. Thank you Linda! We thought we would share this information with our blog community as we think this is a topic of interest for every teacher in every classroom!
