60. Skilled Reading in Context: The Conversational Roots of Reading
Friday March 03, 2023 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM - Hershey Lodge and Convention Center
Decades of educational research have established that skilled reading has its roots in spoken language and is also impacted by multiple, contextual variables. But what does this finding mean in practical terms for the classroom? In this session, we will consider highlights from research on instructional conversations (ICs) and explore new ways of facilitating classroom talk and giving corrective feedback so that all students, including multilingual learners, feel empowered to participate and engage in lessons.
General education and special education administrators and teachers, paraprofessionals, school psychologists, professional development staff, and families of students with disabilities are encouraged to attend.
Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individuals who have special needs as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act and who need assistance at this event. Contact: Debra Jordan at (610) 878-7224 or firstname.lastname@example.org
