Reading aloud has many benefits for ALL students including those with complex learning needs. It helps them:

  • Make progress in vocabulary and communication
  • Understand concepts of print
  • Connect texts to their own knowledge, skills, experiences
  • Believe that reading is pleasurable and worth doing

Do you have the leveled materials you need for reading instruction in mixed-ability groups? (Or, do you spend weekends making your own differentiated lessons?) Are you using Readtopia and need some new ideas for maximizing student engagement?

In this webinar, Kelly Fonner and Beth Poss show you how to “get interactive” with reading instruction. See examples grounded in the core content of Readtopia—based on the principles in the popular book, Comprehensive Literacy for ALL (Erickson & Koppenhaver). Learn how to make the most of PDF Annotation, animated GIFs, props, AAC devices, and more to enhance Interactive Read Aloud, Share Reading and Close Reading.
