Low Level Learners-Interventions & Strategies for Adult Learners
This virtual 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. We will tackle strategies to effectively improve reading skills, student writing, and how to develop “numbers sense” and concept fluency in adult learners. Participants will work in small groups to plan how they will implement strategies.
