Early Reading Difficulties: Improving Outcomes for All Students

Media-fueled debates about the source of children's early reading difficulties and what should be done to address them can create confusion by oversimplifying the issue. The result? Unproductive conversations that shed more heat than light. In this ILA Webinar, Marjorie Y. Lipson, Jeanne R. Paratore, and Victoria J. Risko will review key research on reading difficulties and outline what educators can do to improve outcomes for all students.

Instructional Level or Challenging Text: Too Hard or Not Hard Enough?

For decades, teachers have been told that it is important to match books to children's reading levels to facilitate learning. But how effective is this practice? In this ILA Webinar, Timothy Shanahan will explore the research on instructional levels and teaching with complex text—and share a different approach more likely to help children read better.

Making a Case for Reading Joy

Adults who habitually read find personal enjoyment and benefit from it. Unfortunately, too many young people report reading experiences that disconnect them from reading joy or discourage its development. We can teach young people to become proficient, critical readers without damaging their reading interest and engagement in the process.

In this ILA Webinar, Donalyn Miller, award-winning Texas teacher and author, describes some conditions, rituals, and instructional opportunities that engage young people with reading and set them on the path to joyful reading for a lifetime.
