ILA Resource Collection: Supporting Readers Who Struggle, Ages 12+


How do you address the most critical needs of students who struggle with reading while engaging them with authentic and supportive practices?

The Supporting Readers Who Struggle collections focus on areas such as targeted foundational skills instruction, motivation and engagement, differentiated reading interventions, and increasing working memory and sustained attention. The resources provide practical, evidence-based strategies to help educators tailor their instruction to meet the needs of all their readers and, in the process, they challenge the notion of what it means to be a reader who struggles.
