Low Level Learners-Interventions & Strategies for Language Arts

This session will focus on strategies that are helpful for all learners, but that are particularly helpful for learners on the lower end of the proficiency spectrum. In the first hour we will tackle strategies to effectively improve reading skills. In the second hour we will address strategies for improving student writing, and in the last hour of the session we will focus on developing “numbers sense” and concept fluency in adult learners. Participants will work in small groups to plan how they will implement strategies.
